Improved Sound Localization for CI Users

For bilateral cochlear implant users, the localization of sound sources is a challenging everyday task. Researchers from the Hearing Research Laboratory (ARTORG Center and ENT Department, Inselspital) have recently shown in a clinical study, that an algorithm which imitates the function of the outer ear (pinna) improves the sound localization performance in bilateral cochlear implant users.

The Hearing Research Lab investigates how spatial hearing can be improved in persons with hearing aids.
