Prof Johan Hanekom is a professor in the Department of Electrical, Electronic and Computer Engineering in the Faculty of EBIT. He is group head of Bioengineering at UP, is a member of the Pretoria Cochlear Implant Unit, and has been involved with cochlear implants since 1988 when the first House/3M single-channel CIs were implanted in South Africa. His research is centered on understanding the relationship between electrical stimuli, the resulting space-time neural spike train patterns, and perception with a CI. The research involves computer modelling of processing in the central auditory nervous system and psychoacoustics.
