Abstract

Nonlinear temporal interaction components of otoacoustic emissions (OAEs) may be investigated by presenting a stream of clicks in maximum length sequences. This yields responses, termed here Volterra slices, which are related to the Volterra kernels of the system. The aim of this study was to obtain normative data on Volterra slices over a range of click rates and stimulus levels. OAEs were recorded in 12 normally hearing adult ears at six rates and four click levels. In addition to the first order kernel, six slices from the Volterra slices of orders 2–5 were extracted from the recordings. It was found that higher order kernel slices could be reliably measured in all 12 ears tested and that they have properties that differ from those of the conventional OAEs. These findings may facilitate the study of cochlear function in both normal and pathological ears.
