Do people who were born deaf or have complete deafness benefit more from CI or people who still have some hearing left ?


Who will hear in the future better after having cochlear Implant?

Hi Stream,

It's definitely implantees who had an experience of hearing in their formative years. This means: proper transmission of sound through the implantee's brain happens in the appropriate time-frame although - sooner is better. If you had a good hearing threshold in this period (up to 4 years old), you do not worry regarding this particular issue because your brain had all potentials to evolve a fully functional neural hearing net between.
