Adaptive benefit of cross-modal plasticity following cochlear implantation in deaf adults (2017)
Journal Article
Anderson, C. A., Wiggins, I. M., Kitterick, P. T., & Hartley, D. E. (in press). Adaptive benefit of cross-modal plasticity following cochlear implantation in deaf adults. Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences, 114(38), doi:10.1073/pnas.1704785114. ISSN 1091-6490

It has been suggested that visual language is maladaptive for hearing restoration with a cochlear implant (CI) due to cross-modal recruitment of auditory brain regions. Rehabilitative guidelines therefore discourage the use of visual language. Howeve... Read More

Plasticity in bilateral superior temporal cortex: effects of deafness and cochlear implantation on auditory and visual speech processing (2016)
Journal Article
Anderson, C. A., Lazard, D. S., & Hartley, D. E. (in press). Plasticity in bilateral superior temporal cortex: effects of deafness and cochlear implantation on auditory and visual speech processing. Hearing Research, doi:10.1016/j.heares.2016.07.013. ISSN 0378-5955

While many individuals can benefit substantially from cochlear implantation, the ability to perceive and understand auditory speech with a cochlear implant (CI) remains highly variable amongst adult recipients. Importantly, auditory performance with... Read More
