Deaf children with cochlear implants have an altered auditory experience from hearing children due to the lack of auditory input during the first year(s) of life and the use of the electrical hearing device. Does this altered experience affect how they process emotions? After a pilot session, Yung-Ting is now back in Taiwan for the data collection, aiming to answer this question.

In a nice collaboration with Chang Gung Memorial Hospital (Taoyuan, Taiwan) and with the technical support from Tobii, Yung-Ting started recruiting and testing children from the hospital and primary schools since the end of June (see photo).
