Caption: Cochlear implant and amplifier. The implant's external sound processor (upper right) sits just behind the ear. The transmitter (round, black) sticks magnetically to the skull. It transmits sound as radio waves to an internal receiver (white, lower right) surgically implanted under the scalp. The sound is then transmitted, via wires, to electrodes (far right) implanted in the cochlea of the inner ear, allowing the person to hear the sounds. The device at lower left is an external amplifier. This is the Digisonic MXM cochlear implant.
