Title:
Impact of infrasound on the human cochlea. 
Abstract:
Low-frequency tones were reported to modulate the amplitude of distortion product otoacoustic emissions (DPOAEs) indicating periodic changes of the operating point of the cochlear amplifier. The present study investigates potential differences between infrasound and low-frequency sounds in their ability to modulate human DPOAEs. DPOAEs were recorded in 12 normally hearing subjects in the presence of a biasing tone with f(B)=6Hz and a level L(B)=130dB SPL. Primary frequencies were fixed at f(1)=1...    »
