Perceptual Consequences of Cochlear Damage

Brian C. J. Moore

Oxford University Press

This chapter describes the anatomy and physiology of the cochlea, and the changes associated with cochlear pathology. Evidence is presented supporting the idea that there is an active nonlinear mechanism in the normal cochlea, and a loss of this mechanism in impaired hearing. The effects of cochlear pathology on cochlear tuning, nonlinearity, and input-output functions are described.

Keywords:   anatomy of cochlea, physiology of cochlea, cochlear nonlinearity, tuning in cochlea
