As noted in the sidebar here, I’m at the University of Michigan, involved in hearing research. So, I was so thrilled when it was brought to my attention that research from our institute, on the topic of cochlear implants, was being mentioned in this month’s ‘Economist’ magazine! The article is a good summary of the current state of cochlear implant research, and has some interesting diagrams. Download the PDF here.
Slightly less noble, but kind of humorous, is that the research was also mentioned as a blurb in the most recent Playboy. Not that you read the articles or anything!
