    ..It is also of great theoretical interest in terms of understanding the neural and perceptual mechanisms involved in pattern recognition. ..
  3. Effects of Training on Adult Cochlear Implant Users
    Qian Jie Fu; Fiscal Year: 2010
    ..As recent advances in implant technology seem to be reaching the point of diminishing returns, auditory training may provide the most cost-effective approach for cochlear implant patients to maximize the benefit of the implant device. ..
