Electrocochleography As A Means To Assess Auditory Function Following Noise Exposure

Andrew Stuart1 & Alyson Butler Lake2 1Department of Communication Sciences & Disorders, East Carolina University, Greenville, NC 2Blue Ridge Ear, Nose, Throat & Plastic Surgery, Lynchburg, VA   Electrocochleography (ECochG) has been employed to assess stimulus-related cochlear potentials and the compound action potential (AP) of the auditory nerve. The cochlear potentials include the cochlear microphonic (CM)…

An Account of Some Relationships Between Otoacoustic Emissions and the Olivocochlear Bundle

Aaron Whiteley   The focused examination of otoacoustic emissions began in the 1940s with Georg von Bekesy. Inspired, yet unconvinced by Helmholtz’ idea that the cochlea consisted of resonant structures, Bekesy developed an intricate method of examination that would lead to the place theory and traveling wave theory (Hall, 2000). Bekesy’s experiments built the foundation…
