There are technological solutions that now allow the deaf to regain at least some of their hearing. And now you can listen to what it's like to hear through a cochlear implant.
In this video Michael Dorman, a professor of Speech and Hearing Science, gives us a chance to listen to how things sound to wearers of cochlear implants — and it's incredibly impressive. This doesn't mean researchers are resting on their laurels: he goes on to explain how they can — and will — improve the technology. It's pretty amazing stuff. [YouTube]
