Ian Shipsey, Particle Physicist and Professor of Physics, Oxford University, has been profoundly deaf since 1989. In 2002 he heard
the voice of his daughter for the first time thanks to a cochlear implant. These implants have instigated a popular but controversial revolution in the treatment of deafness. Learn the physiology of natural hearing, the function of cochlear implants, and experience speech and music heard through a cochlear implant. Ian Shipsey was one of the leaders of the experiments that discovered the Higgs particle in 2012.
