A theoretical study of inner-ear mechanics in the presence of short-duration sounds
What is it about?
One of the most salient features of auditory brainstem responses to transient sounds is that latency decreases as stimulus level increases. One of the most salient features of cochlear mechanics is that sharpness of tuning decreases as stimulus level increases. This paper suggests a modeling framework that reconciles these two experimental observations.
Why is it important?
Having a single theoretical framework to explain multiple independent experimental observations contributes to our understanding of the function of the inner ear.
