Cochlear Implant Details
Cochlea is a snail shaped part of your internal ear that enables you to hear and process sounds from your surroundings. Cochlea is supplied with auditory nerves which allow signals to reach your brain to get processed. Our internal ear has small hair and fluid which when vibrate because of sound, stimulate the auditory nerves and convert the signals to electric form. This is the form which is sent to the brain for processing. When this mechanism fails or its efficiency is reduced, cochlear implant is suggested to restore more normal hearing.
