Ian Shipsey, particle physicist and professor of physics, Purdue University. Cochlear implants, the first device to successfully restore neural function, have instigated a popular but controversial revolution in the treatment of deafness, and serve as a model for research in neuroscience and biomedical engineering. The speaker has been profoundly deaf since 1989. Thanks to a cochlear implant he recently heard the voice of his daughter for the first time, and his wife's voice for the first time in 13 years.
