Abstract : Development of the cochlear potential method for study of conductive processes in the ear, and experiments showing the action of the middle ear and cochlear mechanisms, have added substantially to our understanding of the ear under normal and pathological conditions. The development of surgical procedures for the treatment of otosclerosis and other hearing disorders has been guided by principles derived from these investigations. Recent discoveries reveal new possibilities for further advances in these directions. Included is the use of models derived for the ears of lower vertebrates in the design of methods for the treatment of conductive and inner ear deafness. (Author)
