AbstractPrevious studies have shown that the effect of contralateral acoustic stimulation (CAS) on ipsilateral evoked otoacoustic emissions (EOAE) depends somewhat upon the spectrum of the eliciting stimulus. The latency of the EOAE, however, is itself frequency-dependent. Consequently, two general ways of analyzing the effects of CAS may be considered: by frequency band or by temporal segment. In this study, we analyzed the effects of CAS both ways in the same subjects, essentially simultaneously. The frequency analysis of the EOAE derived from the wavelet transform (WT). The WT is known to provide a robust approach to the analysis of non-stationary signals and was anticipated to avoid possible time-frequency confounds of the cochlear mechanical system. For comparison, a more basic analysis - using a temporal moving window - was employed. The results largely support earlier findings and confirm that in humans the greatest suppression of EOAEs by CAS is obtained for lower frequency and/or longer latency EOAE components. Despite expectations for the WT analysis, the more basic, temporal, analysis tended to yield the clearer results.
