If there’s anything that can mimic the natural hearing function of the inner ear, it is cochlear implants!
Cochlear implant is a surgically implanted electronic device which aims to replace the function of a damaged inner ear. Unlike hearing aids, which primarily work by amplifying the sounds for people with reduced hearing capabilities; a cochlear implant provides a sense of sound by directly stimulating the auditory nerve. It completely bypasses the dysfunctional normal hearing mechanism and stimulates the auditory nerve directly.
Cochlear implants are best adviced for people with profound hearing loss as they will create a sensation of sound by bypassing the damaged inner ear.
