The high-pass noise masking technique was used to obtain derived frequency-specific cochlear microphonics (CM) from subtracted waveforms to rarefaction and condensation stimuli recorded with a tympanic membrane electrode. Two characteristics suggest that the response is place-specific CM: the derived response retains the same frequency as the stimulating toneburst and the response follows the stimulus polarity. For click stimulation, derived neural responses make the place-specific CM difficult… CONTINUE READING
