Abstract: In the clinical setting cochlear implant programming can be a time-consuming process and is particularly difficult in those too young to provide behavioural feedback.

Currently, the auditory nerve’s response to single pulse stimuli is used as a means to partially automate cochlear implant programming; however, it is not very accurate and causes poor speech perception outcomes.

This work investigates the use of certain non-threshold ECAP features to increase accuracy of cochlear implant behavioural threshold predictions.
