Abstract:

This paper presents an ear model that combines the classical transmission-line cochlear model, the active cochlear partition model, and the active model of a single outer hair cell OHC. This model can successfully generate tall and broad basilar membrane response and otoacoustic emissions. Result show that, owning to the OHC activities, the active cochlear partition has an equivalent resistance always lower than the resistance of a passive cochlear partition and that the active cochlear partition has an equivalent capacitance always higher than the capacitance of a passive cochlear partition.
