Talk: Breaking the Silence - with hearing devices

Our studio guest is Prof. Dirk Mürbe, who heads the Saxonian Cochlear Implant Center.Long-term hearing loss and deafness are conditions that are generally incurable. Damage to the ear is often irreversible. However, technology can come to the rescue. A device called a cochlear implant, placed deep inside the inner ear can help break the silence. Hearing-impaired children who receive a cochlear implant early on can learn to hear and speak normally. And it turns out that their brains are undergoing some major reorganization.
