Investigates on the optimal relation between the two primaries used to generate Distortion Product Otoacoustic Emissions (DPOAE) in unimpaired human ears. Use of the ILO92 and ANOVA in gender effects determination of stimulus levels of frequencies; Mechanisms responsible for the level dependence of optimal relationships; Efficacy of mathematical models used.

    Introduction: Tinnitus, the perception of the sound in the absence of an external acoustic source, disrupts the daily life 1 out of every 200 adults, yet its physiological basis remains largely a mystery. The generation of tinnitus is commonly linked with the impaired functioning of the outer...

    Background: Tone-burst otoacoustic emissions (TBOAEs) have not been routinely studied in pediatric populations, although tone burst stimuli have greater frequency specificity compared with click sound stimuli. The present study aimed (1) to determine an appropriate stimulus level for neonatal...

    Invariant distortion product otoacoustic emission (DPOAE) phase elucidates scaling symmetry in the cochlea. Below some low-frequency boundary, DPOAE phase slope steepens. The origin of this break in phase invariance is not clear. Stimulus frequency (SF)OAE delays computed from the slope of phase...

    Tinnitus is the phantom perception of sounds. No single theory explaining the cause of tinnitus enjoys universal acceptance, however, it is usually associated with hearing loss. The aim of this study was to investigate the relationship between tinnitus pitch and audiometry, minimum masking...
