Building the musical muscle: An amazing talk about cochlear implants by Charles Limb
Charles Limb is a surgeon who performs cochlear implantation, he is also a musician. In this 15-minuted TED talk he discusses how we hear and experience speech and music in very different ways, demonstrates how music sounds to a cochlear implant wearer and talks about other problems with CIs. Charles’ goal in his work is to bring the beauty back into sound for CI wearers, not just to give them functional speech recognition but to have CIs that are so perfect that people can enjoy the warmth, beauty and magic of music.
The talk has captions/subtitles available in 13 different languages.
