The effects of contralaterally elicited middle-ear muscle (MEM) reflexes on cochlear microphonic responses to air- and bone-conducted tones were examined in decerobrate cats. Stapedius effects on bone condn air conduction were almost identical in configuration and amplitude to those on air conduction at all frequencies. However, tensor tympani effects were more complex, the configuration of the bone-conduction effects varying with the location of the transducer on the skull and with frequency… CONTINUE READING
