Baldi: An animated talking head that displays coarticulation  See handout 3. Hearing aid implant that operates at the middle ear  See handout 4. Cochlear implants  See handout for a link to a website with an overview on what cochlear implants are.  Hearing aid: amplifies sound  Cochlear implant: transmits sound directly to the auditory nerve by electrical stimulation of the cochlea. Bypasses ear canal, ear drum, and middle ear bones. (source: Philipos C. Loizou, UT Dallas) Better intelligibility with more channels: “In multi-channel cochlear implants, an electrode array is inserted in the cochlea so that different auditory nerve fibers can be stimulated at different places in the cochlea, thereby exploiting the place mechanism for coding frequencies” (Philipos C. Loizou, UT Dallas)  Asymmetry between speech/language and music in current cochlear implants  Differences between ASL (American Sign Language) and BSL (British Sign Language) – they are different languages, in contrast to spoken American English and spoken British English. o Signs for ‘number’ and ‘maybe’ in ASL vs. BSL o Look up ASL signs here: o Look up BSL signs here:
