Introduction
Primary research interest is studying reshaping electrical fields generated by a cochlear implant to create more precise stimulation and improve spectral resolution, as well as using the cochlear implant as a tool to study the functioning of the auditory system.

Article
Objective: To investigate a new surgical and signal processing technique that provides apical stimulation of the cochlea using a cochlear implant without extending the length of the electrode array. Patients: Three adult patients who underwent cochlear implantation using this new technique. Interventions: The patients received a cochlear impla...
Article
Objectives: A software tool (EasyMDT) that measures temporal modulation detection thresholds of a broadband noise carrier is presented. EasyMDT is designed to be both easy and quick to promote the use in environments where testing time is limited, and testers may not have extensive technical expertise to use typical research software. In addition,...
Article
Objectives: Pitch is poorly perceived by cochlear implant (CI) users. However, as it is not well understood how pitch is encoded with electric stimulation, improving pitch representation with a CI is challenging. Changes in place of stimulation along the cochlea have been described as changes in pitch and can be accurately ranked by CI users. Howe...
Article
Objectives: Cochlear implants (CIs) restore speech perception in quiet but they also eliminate or distort many acoustic cues that are important for music enjoyment. Unfortunately, quantifying music enjoyment by CI users has been difficult because comparisons must rely on their recollection of music before they lost their hearing. Here, we aimed to...
Article
Objectives: The Quick Spectral Modulation Detection (QSMD) test provides a quick and clinically implementable spectral resolution estimate for cochlear implant (CI) users. However, the original QSMD software (QSMD(MySound)) has technical and usability limitations that prevent widespread distribution and implementation. In this article, we introduc...
Article
Objectives: Many clinics are faced with the difficulty of evaluating performance in patients who speak a language for which there are no validated tests. It would be desirable to have a nonlinguistic method of evaluating these patients. Spectral ripple tests are nonlinguistic and highly correlated with speech identification performance. However, t...

Objectives: The auditory experience of early deafened pediatric cochlear implant (CI) users is different from that of postlingually deafened adult CI users due to disparities in the developing auditory system. It is therefore expected that the auditory psychophysical capabilities between these two groups would differ. In this study, temporal resol...

Cochlear-implant users who have experienced both analog and pulsatile sound coding strategies often have strong preferences for the sound quality of one over the other. This suggests that analog and pulsatile stimulation may provide different information or sound quality to an implant listener. It has been well documented that many implant listener...
Article
Monopolar Virtual Channels (MPVCs) use current steering to increase the number of spectral channels provided to cochlear implant users beyond the physical number of electrodes. The current spread created with a current steered channel is similar to the spread found for monopolar stimulation, and this spread may be one of the bottlenecks for improve...

Evaluating a New Algorithm for Multi-Talker Babble Noise Reduction Using Resonance Based Signal Decomposition. Roozbeh Soleymani, Ivan W. Selesnick, David M. Landsberger Background: One of the key challenges for cochlear implant (CI) users is understanding speech in background noise. Previously, many different single-channel noise reduction algor...
