The cochlea doesn't simply choose up sound, it additionally produces sounds of low depth known as Otoacoustic Emissions (OAEs). Sounds produced by way of fit ears – both spontaneously or in keeping with stimuli - enable researchers and clinicians to review listening to and cochlear functionality noninvasively in either animals and people. This publication offers the 1st critical evaluate of the organic foundation of those otoacoustic emissions.

Sample text

Although the traveling wave inherited nonlinearity from the cochlear amplifier, they emphasized that a linearly behaving reflector would give rise to both stimulus-frequency emissions and also (provided distortion products generated elsewhere created apical traveling waves that passed the reflector) distortion-product emissions. T. Kemp reflection was responsible for the retransmission of traveling-wave energy back to the base of the cochlea and not mechanical nonlinearity. The mechanism proposed for these emissions, coherent reflection from random irregularities, has already been described.
