A model for energy flow in the inner ear of the bullfrog (Rana catesbeiana)

Abstract

We present a quantitative mathematical model that represents the main features of the bullfrog inner ear. Calculated responses based on this model predict the observed frequency separation between the amphibian papilla and basilar papilla responses. The origin of this separation can be traced to the effect of the contact membranes on the impedance of the… (More)
