THE REMARKABLE HISTORY OF COCHLEAR IMPLANTS

February 07, 2025

‘The remarkable history of cochlear implants’ a talk by Mr Roger Gray

Mr Roger Gray, Retired ENT Surgeon, Addenbrooks Hospital, Cambridge

Roger writes about his talk

‘It began with a fellowship to San Francisco when I was a half – trained ENT registrar in 1980. I met Prof Michael Merzenich at University College San Francisco who believed a totally deaf cochlea could be made to work by electrical stimulation. Astonishingly he was right, and this is the story.

This talk is about the people who made it happen, the patients who risked surgery, the many devices, the stimulation patterns  but most of all, the amazing consequences for deaf children.’
