    Abstract

    Ten patients who use the Ineraid cochlear implant were tested on a consonant identification task. The stimuli were 16 consonants in the “aCa” environment. The patients who scored greater than 60 percent correct were found to have high feature information scores for amplitude envelope features and for features requiring the detection of high-frequency energy. The patients who scored less than 60 percent correct exhibited lower scores for all features of the signal. The difference in performance between the two groups of patients may be due, at least in part, to differences in the detection or resolution of high-frequency components in the speech signal.
