Language is a very complex process and one’s existence as a social being or the existence of the society itself cannot
be understood in its absence. Communication is the fundamental and primordial function of language. It can be verbal or non-verbal and plays an important role in the development of human communities. The continuous development of communication methods made possible for patients with bilateral profound neurosensorial deafness to
use cochlear implants. These implants also introduce a new concept, that of cerebral plasticity. In the absence of adequate stimulation of the sensorial system (in this case, of the auditory system), primitive connections diminish and disappear. To evaluate the consequences of auditory loss, one will use as indicators the cell size in the central auditory system and the color intensity as determined by the status of the protein synthesis activity on a cellular level.
