Examining basilar membrane motion of an auditory model by using tone-burst otoacoustic emissions

The measurement of tone-burst otoacoustic emissions (TBOAEs), which arise on the basilar membrane (BM), is a potential method for examining cochlear activity. In this contribution we consider whether TBOAEs are a suitable tool to customize the BM parameterization of an auditory model. To examine this relation, measurements of TBOAE input/output (I/O) functions were conducted in the present paper and compared to the BM I/O function of the auditory model. Latter includes models of the human basilar membrane and outer hair cells, and is simulated via wave digital filters. The results show that TBOAE is related to the BM velocity and may provide a viable tool for adjusting the parameters of the simulated BM activity
