Electrocochleography II: Recording Approaches


Course Preview

Course Description

This intermediate course will describe the various approaches used to record ECochG, with an emphasis on performing non-invasive measurements from the tympanic membrane. Descriptions of and comparisons between extra- and trans-tympanic approaches will be included along with guidelines for recording parameters (i.e., subject preparation, stimuli, signal averaging parameters), and waveform interpretation

Learning Objectives:

  • Become familiar with the various recording approaches used for performing ECochG, along with their advantages and limitations
  • Become familiar with the various subject-, stimulus-, and signal averaging-parameters used for recording ECochG and how to interpret an electrocochleogram
  • Acquire the knowledge to perform ECochG recordings from the tympanic membrane
