The Nurotron 24 channel intracochlear electrode array has the following features: 1) Size - an ideal array must fit within ST of all anatomically normal cochleae when inserted to its intended depth, 2) stiffness - an electrode that is stiffer in the vertical plane is less likely to deviate upward into the scala vestibule, and 3) insertion depth and distribution of stimulating contacts - for optimum performance, stimulus channels must be inserted to a depth that corresponds to the cochleotopic locations critical for speech discrimination.

This 'cochleotopic' gradient of susceptibility is expressed as high-frequency hearing loss, which extends to include progressively lower frequencies with more extensive cochlear damage.
