The transformation of speech into electrical signals which can stimulate the auditory nerve in order to create hearing sensations that carry speech information depends on many factors. These include the limitations imposed by the current state-of-the-art in otological surgery, mieroelectronic and micromechanical technology, and knowledge of the functioning of the auditory system under both acoustic and electrical stimulation. Sufficient advances have been made in all these areas to enable several research centers to develop cochlear prostheses which give some hearing to certain totally deaf persons. The work of these centers towards the goal of full unaided speech perception via the prosthesis is examined and evaluated.
