Investigation on coupling between tectorial membrane mode and basilar membrane mode along cochlea.
We analyzed the dispersion relations of the tectorial membrane mode and the basilar membrane mode of the cochlea. We focused on the coupling between these two modes. We estimated the coupling points of the modes from the intersection points where the dispersion curves of both modes cross. We investigated the relationship between the frequency and the location of the intersection points and compared the result with the frequency map obtained from Greenwood function.Author(s): Kitamura T, Horii Y
