The effect of a visual and of an auditory task on the cochlea was studied by transiently evoked otoacoustic emissions (TEOAEs). TEOAE amplitude decreased during visual and auditory attention for all 13 subjects tested. The decreased TEOAE activity was noted predominantly within the 960 to 1920 Hz range during visual attention and within the 1920-2880 Hz(More)
The effect of a visual task on the active micromechanical properties of the cochlea studied by the evoked otoacoustic emissions (EOAEs) has been the subject of only one published study (Brain Research, 44 (1988) 380-383). In order to examine the reliability of this effect, a similar study has been run on 16 subjects. A significant decrease in EOAEs during a(More)
In this paper the effect of sleep on the cochlea is studied by transiently evoked otoacoustic emissions (TEOAEs). Amplitude increases considerably (e.g., 4 dB) and the effect of a contralateral noise on the TEOAEs decreases during the night. These modifications can be related to sleep, although there is no link to electroencephalographic sleep stage. During(More)
Changes in transiently evoked otoacoustic emissions (TEOAEs) occur during sleep and during tasks requiring attention. This can be due to a central nervous system effect on the cochlea. But, an additional or dominant influence by non-controlled factors is possible. In this paper, the effect of click-stimulus repetition, lying and sitting positions, state of(More)
Microsurgical removal of nonfunctioning pituitary adenomas (NFPAs) is often subtotal. Removing the blind spots as viewed through the microscope, endoscopic surgery may improve the quality of removal. Our purpose was to compare the results of the two techniques in a series of NFPA patients operated on by a single surgeon. Thirty-six patients with newly(More)
Although meat consumption plays a significant role for individual and public health, there is only little empirical research on the motives of meat consumption informed by health psychology and hardly any on socio-political commitments concerning general meat production taking on a public health perspective. To fill this gap, a questionnaire study was(More)
It is possible by studying the Evoked Otoacoustic Emissions (EOAEs) to detect an effect of selective attention on the cochlea. The authors present the main data of the literature and the results of their works. They show an effect of visual attention as well as auditory attention on the EOAEs. This effect is not the same whether attention is visual or(More)
