Graeme Clark's bionic ear (or cochlear implant) is a neural prosthesis designed to produce hearing sensations by electrically stimulating nerves inside the inner ear of profoundly deaf patients. It consists of a receiver-stimulator that is surgically placed under the patient's skin behind the ear, and an external sound processor that sits behind the ear, similar to a hearing aid.
