Abstract

Triangular wave acoustic stimulation at 200 Hz produced the expected square wave cochlear microphonic at the round window membrane and within the scala media. Intracellular recordings from inner hair cells (IHC) of the first cochlear turn showed a combination waveform having both spike impulse and square wave features. The IHC response suggests a sensitivity of these cells to both the displacement and to the velocity of basilar membrane motion.
