audio visual speech perception by children and adults with cochlear implant

Abstract : Cochlear implants (CI) improves auditory speech perception in deaf individuals, adults as well as children. However, the auditory information provided by CI is degraded, not optimal. Addition of visual speech read information enhances speech perception in CI participants. It could be interesting to look at audio-viual speech perception through CI in chinese deaf people for two reasons : 1) the tonal character of the oral chinese language : how are these tonal information delivered through CI; 2) the benefit provided by speechreading. This research will contribute to generalize our knowledge of the effects of CI on deaf persons.
