On the Nature of Cochlear Resonance
In this paper attention is paid to details of the shape of the response peak in cochlear models, in particular, the relation between response amplitude and phase. This is done for several types of cochlear model and the results are to be compared with experimental data on basilar membrane (BM) motion. The models used will be linear because a linear filter describes well the fundamental elements of cochlear filtering. As a matter of fact, for stimuli comprising a multitude of components, the cochlear response can be well predicted by a model containing a linear filter as its main frequency-selective element (de Boer and de Jongh, 1978).
