At Cochlear Nordic Symposium 2017, Dr.Papsin will  give the audience on the plenary day a presentation on "Three dimensional percept in the absence of fusion: What cochlear implants have taught us about the developing auditory system."

For the CI day, aimed at surgeons and audiology doctors, Dr. Papsin will develop the complete understanding of the relationship between balance and hearing loss before and after implantation.  Although it is focused on children, in truth the application is as important, and maybe even more important, to adults.
