BIG EAR HEARING
On Monday, Chuck is going to have a cochlear implant at Mayo Clinic. A pretty amazing surgery where a small thin array is inserted into his cochlear and is programed to pick up sounds and convert them to electrical impulses that his brain can actually work with. But, it’s not like our magic ears…and Chuck will have to learn how to translate those impulses into sounds…chickadees fighting, music playing, and songs erupting.
An exciting journey over the next year and TVbyGIRLS is going to be following him and his family as they discover a lot of things–how the brain ‘hears’, how music ‘sounds’, and the magical mystery of how our brain works.
We start with Chuck’s surgery on Monday and Mayo clinic is allowing us to film in the OR. Look out for more reports coming up.
