- Exploiting Dual Otoacoustic Emission Sources. Abdala, Carolina; Kalluri, Radha // AIP Conference Proceedings;2016, Vol. 1703, p090015-1
Two distinct processes generate otoacoustic emissions (OAEs). Reflection-source emissions, here recorded as stimulus frequency OAEs, are optimally informative at low sound levels and are more sensitive to slight hearing loss; they have been linked to cochlear amplifier gain and tuning....
- VALIDATION OF A SELF-REPORT INSTRUMENT TO IDENTIFY OLDER PERSONS WITH HEARING LOSS. Welsh, K.; Reuben, D.; Moore, A.; Damesyn, M.; Greendale, G. // Gerontologist;Oct1996 Supplement, Vol. 36 Issue 1, p326
