Sound energy absorbance changes in the elderly with presbycusis with normal outer and middle ear
Conclusionit was determined that there was a decrease in RF and absorbances at 2000 and 4000  Hz in the elderly with presbycusis. Aging affects not only the inner ear but also the conduction mechanism of the middle ear. Our findings may be effective in a more accurate and reliable interpretation of WBT in the elderly with presbycusis. (Source: European Archives of Oto-Rhino-Laryngology)

Investigation of cochlear microphonics recorded with different stimulus types
This study had executed at Başkent University, Faculty of Health Sciences Audiology laboratory. The study group consisted of 42 volunteers between 18 and 40 years old. To understand the suitability of volunteers, pure tone audiometry, tympanometry, and transient otoacoustic emission tests were performed. Individuals with no hearing loss were tested with 100 dBnHL intensity level via click and LS CE-Chirp stimulus. The obtained values were statistically evaluated in the SPSS 23.0 program in accordance with the data distribution. An independent sample t-test was used for data showing normal distribution, and Mann-Whitney U ...
