Basilar membrane behaviour and more generally cochlea mechanisms are not yet clearly understood today. Using bibliographic data and performing an experiment on control of cochlear acoustic energy, the authors analysed the relations between cochlear mechanical parameters and electrocochleographic thresholds. Auditory thresholds appear to be related to the velocity factor of basilar membrane motion.

Zusammenfassung

Das Verhalten der Basilarmembran und allgemeiner die Mechanik der Cochlea werden heute noch nicht klar verstanden. Unter Verwendung von Literaturdaten und mit Hilfe eines Experiments zur Kontrolle der cochlearen Schallenergie untersuchten die Autoren die Beziehungen zwischen mechanischen Parametern der Cochlea und elektrocochleographischen Schwellen. Es scheint, daß Hörschwellen mit der Geschwindigkeit der Bewegung der Basilarmembran zusammenhängen.

Sommaire

Le comportement de la membrane basilaire et d'une façon plus générale les problèmes liés à la mécanique cochléaire ne sont pas encore clairement compris aujourd'hui. Les auteurs se proposent d'analyser les relations existant entre certains paramètres de la mécanique cochléaire et l'apparition des seuils de réponses auditives à l'aide de données anatomiques tirées de la bibliographie et en contrôlant de façon expérimentale l'énergie acoustique a l'entrée de la cochlée. Le facteur vitesse de déplacement de la membrane basilaire semble être déterminant dans la Genèse des seuils de sensibilité auditive.
