Sense of Hearing: Cochlear Implants

Synopsis
The video programmes associated with SD329 Signals and Perception: The Science of The Senses cover the senses of hearing, vision, proprioception, and smell. Using graphics and a series of interviews with well-known researchers, the programmes explain how the signals are processed and explore some current issues relating to these senses.
New developments in cochlear implants have been made possible by recent advances in our understanding of how a normal healthy ear decodes the information contained in a sound signal. This video follows the progress of research to improve these implants and in so doing takes a fascinating journey into the neurophysiological processes of hearing.

Notes
NB. As of May 2016 Open University Worldwide are no longer distributing DVDs. They have posted this message on their website: ‘Unfortunately Open University Worldwide Limited has decided that product sales are no longer viable given the reduced funding to Higher Education institutions and diminishing demand for the products we have traditionally stocked. At present the Open University Students Association (OUSA) will continue to sell the "Good Study Guide", and we are in discussion with other possible distributors to continue to make The Open University’s products available for purchase. As soon as we have any information on other channels of distribution we will update this notice’. Some products are still available via second hand dealers on Amazon.co.uk
