Project "COMBINE: COmbined stimulation Modelling of the Bionic INner Ear" started: 01.10.2022

In October, the project "COMBINE" was launched in cooperation with MED-EL GmbH (Innsbruck, Austria) and Maastricht University Medical Center+ (Maastricht, The Netherlands). The project aims at obtaining a better understanding of the neuronal activation and resulting measurements in the inner ear that occur when the vestibular organ and the cochlea are stimulated together by combined cochlear-vestibular implants. As a basis for this, computer models developed at IEBE are extended and verified by patient data to simulate and analyze relevant quantities such as nerve activation and evoked compound action potentials (eCAPs).
