A cochlear implant is an electronic device that gives a 'sensation' of hearing if you are profoundly deaf. Each cochlear implant is made up of two parts: an external part and an internal part. The external part is worn like a hearing aid and has a sound processor. This translates sounds into electrical signals and then sends these to the internal part. The internal part is surgically implanted in your ear. It transmits electrical signals from the sound processor to your hearing, or auditory, nerve. These signals are recognised as sounds by your brain.
