Travelling Waves

The travelling-wave displacement patterns shown below were computed with a time-domain model of cochlear mechanics which included active and nonlinear mechanical elements.

Basilar membrane displacement for a 250 Hz tone.


Basilar membrane displacement for a 1 kHz tone.


Basilar membrane displacement for a 4 kHz tone.


Basilar membrane displacement for clicks at 100/second rate.
