|abstract ||Based on our insights derived from literature we arrive at two more basic principles
that form the cornerstones of our model: namely, the fact that the attenuation of the
eardrum and the ossicular chain are at the root of the extremely large dynamic range
of our auditory sense, and the fact that the bone conduction phenomenon is actually
the result of the push-pull movement of the perilymph fluid instead of the presumed
deformation of the bony structures.
These three main premises form the basis for this
new paradigm of the human auditory sense.|
