Abstract


One of the most exciting recent findings in Audiology are the otoacustic emissions. The fenomen of the cochlear echo, based on an active mechanism in the cochlea (most probably in the hair cell system) was first described by Kemp 20 years ago. Since then a lot of research has been directed towards a detailed description of the otoacustic emissions and towards the implications of an active cochlea for the theory of hearing. As a result of these efforts some remarkable findings have been published.

The authors of this article want to make closer the technique of OAE and it's possibilities to everybody who is dealing with hearing impairments in our country.
