In this study, a new monitoring system is developed to measure cochlear blood flow (CBF) and electrocochleography (ECochG) during transient ischemic episodes of the cochlea. A newly designed otic probe was used for the simultaneous recordings of laser-Doppler CBF and ECochG directly from the round window (RW). The probe enabled the recording of high(More)
OBJECTIVE The nature of the auditory steady-state responses (ASSR) evoked with 40-Hz click trains and their relationship to auditory brainstem and middle latency responses (ABR/MLR), gamma band responses (GBR) and beta band responses (BBR) were investigated using superposition theory. Transient responses obtained by continuous loop averaging deconvolution(More)
A method to acquire transient evoked responses at high rates, corresponding to traditional steady state responses (SSR) is developed. Continuous Loop Averaging Deconvolution (CLAD) method is used in conjunction with tailored, low-jitter stimulation sequences. A physiological brain convolution model for SSR generation is adapted and mathematically analyzed.(More)
Electrophysiological indices of auditory binaural beats illusions are studied using late latency evoked responses. Binaural beats are generated by continuous monaural FM tones with slightly different ascending and descending frequencies lasting about 25 ms presented at 1 sec intervals. Frequency changes are carefully adjusted to avoid any creation of abrupt(More)
As computing power of today's computer enhances rapidly, secure encryption is getting harder and the need for powerful secure encryption methods becomes inevitable. To avoid brute-force attacks it is necessary to have a larger key space, which makes the chaotic systems more attractive. In order to sufficiently apply confusion and diffusion rules for an(More)
OBJECTIVES Using the continuous loop averaging deconvolution (CLAD) technique for conventional electrocochleography (ECochG) and auditory brainstem response (ABR) recordings, the effects of testing at high stimulus rates may have the potential to diagnose disorders of the inner ear and auditory nerve. First, a body of normative data using the CLAD technique(More)
Methods and instrumentation were developed to monitor cochlea and auditory function during surgery. The system allows real time assessment of the cochlear function during auditory nerve manipulation. A specially designed optic probe, placed on the round window (RW) niche, enables simultaneous acquisition of cochlear blood flow (CBF) and electrocochleogram(More)
