Two studies are presented that examined changes over time and auditory training effects on performance of adults with cochlear implants. Electrophysiological and behavioral performance measures included cortical auditory and middle latency evoked potentials, speech perception and temporal and spectral auditory processing. This course is presented in partnership with Seminars in Hearing.
