'It was very sudden. One minute I could hear and the next I couldn't.' Eric Giessmann talks about Cochlear Implant Life, his life as an animator and what inspired him to produce the groundbreaking 'Ciborg/Cochlear Implant animation' # cochlearimplantlife # cochlearimplant # cochlearimplantanimator # animation # hearingloss # coganssyndrome # suddenhearingloss # tinnitus # virtualreality
Four years ago today I had my surgery for the cochlear implant! It still surprises me the things I CAN hear with the CI. It's not perfect, but it's pretty darn good! Chirping birds and rainy days are still my favorite things to listen to 😊. . Before
HEARING GRAPHIC: AN AUDIOGRAM FOR PAIN, MUSIC, & SPOKEN LANGUAGE. KEY: The BLACK LINE represents the average threshold for causing physical PAIN to the human ear; right up to that line is the BLUE section, which contains ALL the frequency & volume variations humans can hear w/o pain; within that, a DOTTED LINE & a PINK section show where MUSIC's sound fits in; and then the center YELLOW shows where spoken LANGUAGE sounds are heard. A pretty cool use of a pretty old graph! #Audiology #Deaf #HOH
"A cochlear implant isn't just a fancy hearing aid. 'A hearing aid is really just an amplifier,' says Jessica Phillips-Silver, a neuroscience researcher at Georgetown University. 'The cochlear implant is actually bypassing the damaged part of the ear and delivering electrical impulses directly to the auditory nerve.' As a result, the experience of listening to music or any other sound through the ear can be completely unlike the experience of listening through a cochlear implant."
