Abstract

The effects of the cut-off frequency of the filtered broadband stimuli on the human acoustic reflex (AR) were examined to observe the relation between the area of excitation in the cochlea and the AR response. The results obtained have indicated that all the input from the cochlear region does not equally contribute to trigger the AR equally; i.e., there is a lesser contribution from the frequency region below 700 Hz.
