    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...

    In the mammalian cochlea, self-sustaining oscillation of the basilar membrane in the cochlea can cause vibration of the ear drum, and produce spontaneous narrow-band air pressure fluctuations in the ear canal. These spontaneous fluctuations are known as spontaneous otoacoustic emissions. Small...
