Can you help with this research? From Cailey Salagov at the University of Western Ontario:
The NiSSL Lab (https://www.nissl.ca/) conducts research with cochlear implant and hearing-aid users as well as Deaf and hearing signers to understand how these experiences impact the brain and perception. We are seeking volunteers for a study looking into how sound and vision influence speech understanding in individuals with cochlear implants. Participants must satisfy the following criteria:
• Ages 18+
• Acquired, severe to profound hearing loss leading to cochlear implant
• Normal or corrected to normal vision
The study is online and can be completed at home! Please get in touch at firstname.lastname@example.org to join or with questions!

Minimizing Outcome Spread in Auditory Implants: Cognition and Society: MOSAICS
MOSAICS is a European Industrial Doctorate project funded by the European Union’s Horizon 2020 framework programme for research and innovation under the Marie Sklodowska-Curie grant agreement No 860718.
The scope of the MOSAICS project is to understand, predict, identify and intervene within the variation of adult CI users based on a holistic approach, taking into account body functions and structures, personal factors, activities/participation and environmental factors. https://www.mosaics-eid.eu/project/
Communication for Children with Hearing Impairment to optimise Language Development (Comm4CHILD)
Comm4CHILD is a European project within the European Union’s Horizon 2020 research and innovation program. It addresses the large inter-individual heterogeneity in brain plasticity, cognitive resources, and linguistic abilities.
A group of 15 early stage researchers (ESRs) will be trained in research and intervention in a cross-sectoral way and will focus on three work packages: biology (i.e. anatomical variations of the cochlea and cerebral functional reorganisation), cognition (i.e. working memory, multimodal integration in communication), and language (i.e. inter-individual differences in speech intelligibility and spelling ability).
