Cochlear Implants Are Miraculous and Maddening

Read about one person's experience with implants in a Bloomberg article here. "The cochlear implant is indeed a miraculous device, restoring hearing to those who would otherwise live out their lives in silence. What the implant -- and the brain -- can’t do, however, is restore hearing to the way it used to be. Cochlear implants are a tremendous advance for people with hearing loss. But they are not perfect."
