Brain Activation of Cochlear Implant Candidates (BACIC) Project researchers aim to identify brain-based factors that predict future hearing improvements among candidates for cochlear implants. In the future, this knowledge will help guide clinical practices and empower individuals seeking solutions for severe to profound hearing loss. Although cochlear implants can significantly improve auditory speech perception in individuals with severe to profound hearing loss, the procedure’s success rate is difficult to predict. Certain factors in the brain may contribute to the large unexplained variance in individuals’ abilities to hear and understand spoken language after getting CI(s). Nebraska’s innovative brain imaging research may shed light on brain-based factors, particularly those driven by brain plasticity, that contribute to why some adults with CI have better outcomes than others.
