Effect of sleep stages on transiently evoked oto-acoustic emissions in infants.

Abstract

Transiently evoked oto-acoustic emissions (TEOAEs) are generated by active contractions of the outer hair cells (OHC) of the organ of Corti. TEOAE are inhibited by the medial efferent olivocochlear system which originates in the brainstem and innervates the OHC.
