My latest article, Living in Stereo, has just been published by The Journal of Life Sciences. This story is about my getting a second cochlear implant, or “going bilateral,” as we say. Careful readers of this blog will notice I’ve used (and heavily revised) some material from postings I wrote back back in January and February — but there’s plenty of new material, too. This piece basically sums up my experiences getting the implant and hearing with it during the first few weeks after activation.
This is my sixth publication in 2008. I really am cranking them out, aren’t I? It’s going to be a while before my next article, though, because in the next few weeks I’ll be traveling to MIT, Gallaudet, Key Biscayne (near Miami), and Northwestern (near Chicago). I’ve spent the last few months pounding away at the keyboard, so it’ll be good to get out and stretch my legs.
