Supplementary Material

The Supplementary Material includes results of a comparison between intra-modal responses and cross-modal responses for both CI users and NH controls. Additionally, results for a comparison between CI users and NH controls regarding cross-modal responses for auditory tone stimuli are also listed. Finally, since it is common for CI users to perceive tinnitus, the potential influence of tinnitus on cross-modal responses is also included in the Supplementary Material.
