Feinberg professors use brain scans to predict language skills in deaf children

Researchers created a new algorithm that uses brain scans to predict and maximize language learning for deaf children with cochlear implants.

Researchers from the Feinberg School of Medicine, Ann & Robert H. Lurie Children’s Hospital of Chicago and the Chinese University of Hong Kong used the algorithm to predict how deaf children with cochlear implants could understand speech, according to a Jan. 16 news release.
