Music perception in cochlear implant users and its relationship with psychophysical capabilities

Ward R. Drennan, PhD; Jay T. Rubinstein, MD, PhD

A portion of the veteran population is severely or profoundly hearing impaired as a result of many different causes, such as head trauma, noise-induced hearing loss, ototoxic drugs, or genetics. These people are often treated with a cochlear implant. The quality of life of these veterans could be improved dramatically with improvements to cochlear implant technology that improve music perception. This review discusses research relevant to hearing music with a cochlear implant.
