Fuzziness-detection was used in the study of the vibrations of the basal basilar membrane in post-mortem inner ear preparations (guinea pig). The vibratory pattern along the membrane was measured at different stimulus frequencies. Measurements were carried out with respect to the distribution of the regions of best response, the amplitude and phase distribution and with respect to the linearity of motion. Changes in the vibratory response with time after the animal's death were observed and these changes were found to be continuous. On account of this continuity incompatibilities between VON Békésy's observations and more recent measurements are removed.
