Abstract
Cochlear implantation (CI) is a complex surgical procedure that restores hearing in patients with severe deafness. The successful outcome of the implanted device relies on a group of factors, some of them unpredictable or difficult to control. Uncertainties on the electrode array position and the electrical properties of the bone make it difficult to accurately compute the current propagation delivered by the implant and the resulting neural activation. In this context, we use uncertainty quanti...
