Abstract:

OBJECT To determine whether or not acoustic reflex AR activity can be maintained for relatively long periods of time. RESULTS Results indicate that with the present methodology, reflex contraction is not maintained, as evidenced by post exposure temporary threshold shift TTS. CONCLUSIONS apparently differences in procedure from previous experiments resulted in failure to obtain prolonged AR contractions in this study. Simultaneous presentation of the AR eliciting stimulus and the fatiguing sound was one major difference.
