reflecting comprehension abilities – the N400 and late positive complex (LPC) components – were evoked using congruent and incongruent digit-triplet stimuli. The participants’ task was to assess digit triplet congruency by means of timed button presses. All measurements were performed in speech-shaped noise 15 dB above individually measured speech recognition thresholds. Three stimulus presentation modes were used: Auditory-only, visual-only, and visual-then-auditory. The analyses revealed no group differences in the N400 and LPC responses. In terms of response times, the CI users were slower and differentially affected by the three stimulus presentation modes relative to the controls. Overall, these results indicate that experienced CI users need longer to comprehend speech. Furthermore, they suggest that response times can serve as a proxy for speech comprehension in CI users.
