Measurement of medial olivocochlear efferent activity in humans: comparison of different distortion product otoacoustic emissions-based paradigms

&
Introduction: The medial olivocochlear efferents (MOC) have been shown to be involved in different auditory functions including sound discrimination, selective attention to tones, sound localization and protection of the cochlea against acoustic overstimulation.
