Neurotrophic Factors and Neural Prostheses: Potential Clinical Applications Based Upon Findings in the Auditory System

Lisa N. Pettingill; Rachael T. Richardson; Andrew K. Wise; Stephen J. O'Leary; Robert K. Shepherd IEEE Transactions on Biomedical Engineering, 2007

Spiral ganglion neurons (SGNs) are the target cells of the cochlear implant, a neural prosthesis designed to provide important auditory cues to severely or profoundly deaf patients. The ongoing degeneration of SGNs that occurs following a sensorineural hearing loss is, therefore, considered a limiting factor in cochlear implant efficacy. We review neurobiological techniques aimed at preventing SGN degeneration using exogenous ...


Effect of fast AGC on cochlear implant speech intelligibility

Phyu P. Khing; Eliathamby Ambikairajah; Brett A. Swanson 2011 IEEE International Conference on Acoustics, Speech and Signal Processing (ICASSP), 2011

This study investigated the effect of fast-acting Automatic Gain Control (AGC) on the speech intelligibility of cochlear implant users as a function of presentation level. Both low and high signal-to-noise ratio conditions were investigated. The AGC substantially reduced the amount of clipping, but did not give consistent improvements in intelligibility. With no AGC, and high signal-to-noise ratio, speech scores were ...


The influence of stimulus intensity on spike timing and the compound action potential in the electrically stimulated cochlea: a model study

J. H. M. Frijns; R. Schoonhoven; J. J. Grote Proceedings of 18th Annual International Conference of the IEEE Engineering in Medicine and Biology Society, 1996

In order to get more insight in the fundamentals of electrical stimulation of the auditory nerve by cochlear implants we developed a rotationally symmetric volume conductor model of the implanted inner ear (cochlea), using the boundary element method. The neural responses are calculated with a multiple nonlinear node model of auditory nerve fibers. In the present paper this model is ...


A custom-designed receiver-stimulator chip for an advanced multiple-channel hearing prosthesis

H. McDermott IEEE Journal of Solid-State Circuits, 1991

A receiver-stimulator integrated circuit for an advanced multiple-channel cochlear implant was custom designed and fabricated successfully, using a 3-μm CMOS process with two layers of metal. The chip contains nearly all of the implant electronics, including a data receiver, digital-to-analog converter, three stimulus current generators and timing controllers, 20 output stages, and an outward telemetry subsystem. The measured power consumption ...

    With human-computer interactions and hands-free communications becoming overwhelmingly important in the new millennium, recent research efforts have been increasingly focusing on state-of-the-art multi-microphone signal processing solutions to improve speech intelligibility in adverse environments. One such prominent statistical signal processing technique is blind signal separation (BSS). BSS was first introduced in the early 1990s and quickly emerged as an area of intense research activity showing huge potential in numerous applications. BSS comprises the task of 'blindly' recovering a set of unknown signals, the so-called sources from their observed mixtures, based on very little to almost no prior knowledge about the source characteristics or the mixing structure. The goal of BSS is to process multi-sensory observations of an inaccessible set of signals in a manner that reveals their individual (and original) form, by exploiting the spatial and temporal diversity, readily access ble through a multi-microphone configuration. Proceeding blindly exhibits a number of advantages, since assumptions about the room configuration and the source-to-sensor geometry can be relaxed without affecting overall efficiency. This booklet investigates one of the most commercially attractive applications of BSS, which is the simultaneous recovery of signals inside a reverberant (naturally echoing) environment, using two (or more) microphones. In this paradigm, each microphone captures not only the direct contributions from each source, but also several reflected copies of the original signals at different propagation delays. These recordings are referred to as the convolutive mixtures of the original sources. The goal of this booklet in the lecture series is to provide insight on recent advances in algorithms, which are ideally suited for blind signal separation of convolutive speech mixtures. More importantly, specific emphasis is given in practical applications of the developed BSS algorithms associated with real-life scenarios. The developed algorithms are put in the context of modern DSP devices, such as hearing aids and cochlear implants, where design requirements dictate low power consumption and call for portability and compact size. Along these lines, this booklet focuses on modern BSS algorithms which address (1) the limited amount of processing power and (2) the small number of microphones available to the end-user.

    The senses of human hearing and sight are often taken for granted by many individuals until they are lost or adversely affected. Millions of individuals suffer from partial or total hearing loss and millions of others have impaired vision. The technologies associated with augmenting these two human senses range from simple hearing aids to complex cochlear implants, and from (now commonplace) intraocular lenses to complex artificial corneas. The areas of human hearing and human sight will be described in detail with the associated array of technologies also described.
