Research on cochlear implants has focused on current and future implant technology, bilateral cochlear implantation in adults and children, and speech perception and psychoacoustic properties of hearing in cochlear implant recipients.

Researchers at Mayo Clinic are currently evaluating electrodes designed for hearing preservation and the use of combined acoustic and electric hearing technology. Mayo Clinic researchers are also studying the use of cochlear implants among adults and older children who have hearing loss in one ear or who have differing hearing loss in each ear.
