From article, "Implants Open Up the World of Sound," Helix, Fall/Winter 1997, pp. 19-20. The caption for the picture (p. 19) reads: "Phoenix Burgamy received a chochlear implant when she was 22 months old, making her the youngest person to do so at UVa. Six months later, she hits a buzzer to indicate that she can hear an array of sounds. This allows technicians to adjust the hearing levels of each of the implant's 22 electrodes."
