Basilar membrane nonlinearity determines auditory nerve rate-intensity functions and cochlear dynamic range
In a previous paper (Winter et al., 1990) we demonstrated the existence of a new type of auditory-nerve rate-intensity function, the straight type, as well as a correlation between rate-level type,Expand

Diversity of characteristic frequency rate-intensity functions in guinea pig auditory nerve fibres
Rate-intensity functions at characteristic frequency (CF) were recorded from single fibres in the auditory nerve of anaesthetised guinea pigs. Within the same animal, CF rate-intensity functions,Expand

Outer hair cell receptor current and sensorineural hearing loss
It is argued in this paper that many nonlinear phenomena in audition and many types of sensorineural hearing loss can be explained by a disruption of the mechano-electrical transduction process atExpand

Basilar membrane nonlinearity and its influence on auditory nerve rate-intensity functions

  • Hearing Research
  • 1 December 1990
Previous papers have shown that the shapes of rate-intensity functions of auditory nerve fibres vary with spontaneous rate (Sachs and Abbas 1974; Sachs et al. 1989; Winter et al. 1990; Yates et al.Expand

The origin of the low-frequency microphonic in the first cochlear turn of guinea-pig
Low-frequency microphonic potentials (100 Hz to 2000 Hz) have been measured in the first turn of the guinea pig cochlea before and after a variety of manipulations of the cochlea. These includedExpand

Basilar membrane measurements and the travelling wave
From the original measurements of G. von Békésy (1942) until a few years ago, the basilar membrane was considered to undergo simple passive linear vibration. Recent measurements have completelyExpand

Nonlinear input-output functions derived from the responses of guinea-pig cochlear nerve fibres: Variations with characteristic frequency
Rate-versus-level functions (RLFs) were recorded from individual cochlear nerve fibres in anaesthetised guinea-pigs. Variations in the shapes of these functions with frequency were used to deriveExpand

Changes in cochlear microphonic and neural sensitivity produced by acoustic trauma
The low-frequency (200 Hz) microphonic potentials at the round window and in the organ of Corti of the first turn of the guinea pig cochlea have been measured before and after acousticExpand

  • 1 December 1991
The variation of spontaneous rate with auditory nerve thresholds is compared with predictions from a simple assumption: that spontaneous and driven activity are basically similar, both being evokedExpand

Cochlear action potential threshold and single unit thresholds.
There is a close correlation between the sound pressure of tone burst required to affect a primary auditory neuron at its characteristic frequency and that which will produce a detectable N1 responseExpand
