The effects of eliminating the olivocochlear bundle (OCB) on cochlear electromechanical properties were examined by measuring cochlear microphonics (CM) and distortion product otoacoustic emissions (DPOAEs) in chronically de-efferented chinchillas. The OCB fibers to the right ears were successfully sectioned in six out of 15 adult chinchillas via a posterior paraflocular fossa approach. At the end of the experiment, these ears were histologically verified as being deprived of both lateral and… CONTINUE READING
