Abstract

Recently, the evaluation of the role of the central auditory system in the utilization of cochlear implants has received much attention. In order to fully understand the results of cochlear implantation, one must have an understanding of how the brain is influenced by electrical stimulation of the auditory nerve. This review provides an overview of the structure and function of the central auditory nervous system and the changes that occur as a result of cochlear implant use. Evidence of central auditory plasticity is discussed highlighting key imaging and evoked potential studies.
