Medial olivocochlear efferent neurons can control cochlear frequency selectivity and may be activated in a reflexive manner by contralateral sounds. The present study investigated the significance of the contralateral medial olivocochlear reflex (MOCR) on human psychoacoustical tuning curves (PTCs), a behavioral correlate of cochlear tuning curves.

The present study aimed at characterizing the suppressing effect of contralateral medial olivocochlear (MOC) efferents on human auditory sensitivity and mechanical cochlear responses at sound levels near behavioral thresholds. Absolute thresholds for pure tones of 500 and 4000 Hz with durations between 10-500 ms were measured in the presence and in the(More)
In binaural listening, the two cochleae do not act as independent sound receptors; their functioning is linked via the contralateral medial olivo-cochlear reflex (MOCR), which can be activated by contralateral sounds. The present study aimed at characterizing the effect of a contralateral white noise (CWN) on psychophysical tuning curves (PTCs). PTCs were(More)
