RFcap: A software analysis tool for multichannel cochlear implant signals


Lai, W K; Dillier, N (2013). RFcap: A software analysis tool for multichannel cochlear implant signals. Cochlear implants international, 14(2):107-116.

Abstract

Being able to display and analyse the output of a speech processor that encodes the parameters of complex stimuli to be presented by a cochlear implant (CI) is useful for software and hardware development as well asfor diagnostic purposes. This firstly requires appropriate hardware that is able to receive and decode theradio frequency (RF)-coded signals, and then processing the decoded data using suitable software. The PCI-IF6 clinical hardware for the Nucleus CI system, together with the Nucleus Implant Communicator and Nucleus Matlab Toolbox research software libraries, provide the necessary functionality. RFcap is a standalone Matlab application that encapsulates the relevant functions to capture, display, and analyse the RF-coded signals intended for the Nucleus CI24M/R, CI24RE, and CI500 multichannel CIs.

TrendTerms

TrendTerms displays relevant terms of the abstract of this publication and related documents on a map. The terms and their relations were extracted from ZORA using word statistics. Their timelines are taken from ZORA as well. The bubble size of a term is proportional to the number of documents where the term occurs. Red, orange, yellow and green colors are used for terms that occur in the current document; red indicates high interlinkedness of a term with other terms, orange, yellow and green decreasing interlinkedness. Blue is used for terms that have a relation with the terms in this document, but occur in other documents.
You can navigate and zoom the map. Mouse-hovering a term displays its timeline, clicking it yields the associated documents.
