The implant is small and complex device. The implant consists of two parts: the external portion and the second portion. The external portion is situated behind the ear. The second portion is inserted surgically underneath the skin. A cochlear implant is consisted of several part, and these are: a microphone, a speech processor, a transmitter and receiver and an electrode array. The microphone picks up sounds from the environment. The speech processor processes sounds picked up by the microphone. Transmitter and receiver  receives sounds and transfer them into electric impulses. The electrode array is a group of electrodes which sends the impulses to the auditory nerve.
