Low-frequency hearing
I am interested in the effect of the helicotrema on the cohlear mechanics at very low frequencies. The helicotrema is located at the very apical end of the cochlea, and connects scala vestivuli with scala tympany. It frequencys below approx. 100 Hz, it shunts the differential pressure across the basilar membrane and consequently reduces cochlear sensitivity to such frequencies. I have shown that it contributes to a resonance in this frequency range which is also perceptionally evident in most listeners.
