The relation between tympanic membrane higher order modes and standing waves

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingConference contribution

Abstract

Here we address the question of the specific relation between Tympanic Membrane (TM) higher order modes, and the existence of standing waves. These questions relate to the nature of the middle ear (ME) as a cascade of transmission lines, and what happens when the matching goes from nearly perfect, when the normal cochlear is the TM load, to totally out of balance, due to either ME or cochlear pathology. This is important for the diagnoses of a pathology given the ME reflectance.
