Speech Analysis and Single Channel Enhancement to Improve Speech Intelligibility for Cochlear Implant Recipients
Cochlear implant (CI) devices are able to help deaf individuals recover hearing ability by surgically inserting electrode arrays into the inner ear, to stimulate the auditory nerve and transmit the sound to the auditory ...
Lombard Effect in Speech Production by Cochlear Implant Users: Analysis, Assessment and Implications
In daily communication, speakers aim to communicate their message in a manner that is intelligible to listeners. When individuals with normal hearing become aware of reduced auditory feedback due to environmental noise, ...
FPGA System Design of a Cochlear Research Platform to Support Bimodal (EAS) and Variable Rate Electric Stimulation
The extensive research and continuous improvements in sound processing strategies play a significant role in the advancement of cochlear implants and hearing aid technologies. Cochlear implants are characterized by different ...
Societal Benefit of Early Hearing Detection and Intervention
Cost analyses afford a way to demonstrate the efficacy and utility of a health intervention by establishing the conditions in which the benefits of treatment outweigh the monetary costs. To date, few have used cost analyses ...
Real-Time Simulink Implementation of Noise Adaptive Speech Processing Pipeline of Cochlear Implants
This thesis presents a real-time Simulink implementation of a noise adaptive speech processing pipeline for cochlear implants that was developed in a previous work. After providing an overview of each component or module ...
