Compression: From Cochlea to Cochlear Implants (Springer by Sid P. Bacon, Richard R. Fay, Arthur N. Popper (Editors)

By Sid P. Bacon, Richard R. Fay, Arthur N. Popper (Editors)

The mechanical reaction of the basilar membrane within the cochlea performs a primary position in human listening to. This quantity discusses the most features of cochlear compression, together with anatomy and body structure; the perceptual results of compression in basic listening to; the results of listening to loss on compression; and its functionality in listening to aids and cochlear implants. The position of compression has expanding functional value because it is integrated into listening to aids and cochlear implants to catch up on insufficient compression in individuals with cochlear listening to loss.
