Why is it important?

Behavioral evaluation of language development is an important index for the usefulness of cochlear implantation. However, it could not apply to infants and very young children. It is useful to adopt an objective measure to examine speech discrimination in this population.


I would like to go further in studying the underlying factors causing variability of speech perception outcomes in cochlear implanted children, despite having proper programing and auditory training. Different aspects of cognitive functions would be my target in the upcoming research.
