Design and Function of CIs
At first glance, this article looks like a scientific article that might not interest some of you (I admit such articles bore me and I’d rather read about it in a newspaper story or non-scientific magazine.). It starts off:
“Ludwig van Beethoven was 28 years old when he first noticed a ringing and buzzing in his ears. Soon he was unable to hear high notes from the orchestra; speech became indistinct. By 1802, four years after the first symptoms, he was profoundly deaf.
“Beethoven fell into a deep depression. He describes this period in his Heiligenstadt Testament, meant to be read after his death:”
That describes how I feel up to the despair
The next paragraph talks about a guy who lost his hearing by 34 and now hears well enough to recognize 100 percent of over 1400 words thanks to an implant.
The rest of the story goes on to talk about implants and hearing. Great resource for anyone who asks about them.
