How does it work? The system consists of a receiver/stimulator, a pocket sized speech processor worn on the body, and the microphone/headset. During surgery, the receiver/stimulator is implanted behind the ear. A wire leads from the receiver/stimulator to a series of electrodes that are implanted into the brainstem. The speech processor and microphone/headset pick up sound and change it into electrical impulses that are sent to the implanted receiver/stimulator. The impulses travel down the wire to the electrodes, which electrically stimulate the area of the brain that normally receives the electrical signal from the ear
