Long (31.5 mm) electrode arrays are inserted deeper into the cochlea than the typical 1.25 turn insertion. With these electrode arrays, the apical electrodes are closer to (and possibly extend past) the end of the spiral ganglion. Using multi-dimensional scaling with patients implanted with a 31.5 mm electrode array, the perceptual space between electrodes was measured. The results suggest that deeper insertion increases the range of place pitches, but the perceptual differences between adjacent electrodes become smaller in the apex.
