Transiently evoked otoacoustic emissions can be suppressed with simultaneous contralateral sound stimulation. This is considered to be effected via the efferent pathway from the superior olivary complex (SOC) to the contralateral cochlea. This study examined this effect in patients with extrinsic and intrinsic lesions of the brainstem which may affect the efferent pathway either within the vestibular nerve which carries the efferent bundle to the cochlea or within the brainstem at the level of… CONTINUE READING
