Hydrodynamics of otoacoustic emissions

Taha Jaffer, Hans Kunov


The basal boundary condition for the classical one-dimensional cochlear model was reconsidered. A revision of the basal boundary condition was derived by considering that the movement of the cochlear partition (CP) introduces additional fluid volume displacements to the stapedial pumping of the oval window. A preliminary simulation was constructed to test the effectiveness of this revised basal boundary condition.
