Music Pre-Processing for Cochlear Implants (2015)
Abstract / truncated to 115 words
A Cochlear Implant (CI) is a medical device that enables profoundly hearing impaired people to perceive sounds by electrically stimulating the auditory nerve using an electrode array implanted in the cochlea. The focus of most research on signal processing for CIs has been on strategies to improve speech understanding in quiet and in background noise, since the main aim for implanting a CI was (and still is) to restore the ability to communicate. Most CI users perform quite well in terms of speech understanding. On the other hand, music perception and appreciation are generally very poor. The main goal of this PhD project was to investigate and to improve the poor music enjoyment in CI ... toggle 1 keywordcochlear implants
