The effect of different bands of contralaterally presented noise at low and moderate intensities on stimulus frequency otoacoustic emissions (SFOAE) from human ears is examined. A SFOAE evoked by a continuous stimulus tone and suppressed by a second tone to produce an SFOAE residual was chosen as the probe to determine the effect of the efferent input. At low levels of contralateral noise, a band centred on the ipsilateral stimulus frequency was the most effective suppressor of the SFOAE… CONTINUE READING
