Research Grants1

  1. Improved efficacy of cochlear implants by directed regrowth of the auditory nerve
    JENNIFER CHIKAR; Fiscal Year: 2007
    ..The intent of this study is to improve the perception of sound from the implant and potentially provide the cochlear implant user with the ability to hear more complex sounds. ..
