Project to explore aspects of music for cochlear implant users

Southampton University researchers are exploring ways to help deaf people, who have received a cochlear implant, get more enjoyment out of music. Music professor David Nicholls and Dr. Rachel van Besouw from the University’s Institute of Sound and Vibration Research (ISVR) have secured funding from the Arts and Humanities Research Council in England to work with patients from the South of England Cochlear Implant Centre in this effort to improve the technology.
