Raising my hand at the back of the room,
As one who is admittedly possibly an intruder, may I ask a question?
I know little to nothing about hearing loss, but are there some hearing
devices that rely on remnants of ear apparatus and others that utilize bone
or skull vibrations more as effective transmiters of potential auditory
information to the brain?
I know this must sound infantile and stupud, but I shall dare to ask
because I have heard that there are several modes to transmit sound
vibrations to the brain. Please, please, forgive my stupidity as I try to
understand this aspect of sensory loss.
