Neural entrainment to the speech envelope in cochlear implant users

Ben Somers

Research Seminar in framework of doctoral education


The temporal envelope of speech is encoded in the oscillating patterns of the listener’s brain. Recent studies with normal hearing participants have shown that this neural representation of the envelope can be decoded from EEG measurements, and that it is related to speech intelligibility. Obtaining a measure for neural entrainment to the speech envelope in response to electrical stimulation with a cochlear implant poses additional challenges, as the electrical artifacts are continuously present and obscure the EEG. In the presented study, the successful decoding of the speech envelope from EEG measured in cochlear implant users is demonstrated for the first time.
