Abstract

Findings from literature suggest that there may be an influence of auditory attention on the medial olivocochlear system, causing the gain of the cochlea to change due to outer hair cell innervation when a person attends or ignores an auditory stimulus. In an attempt to further investigate this effect, the paradigm of a previous pilot study was adapted and the experiment was rebuilt using more accurate measurement techniques. The results showed a minor effect that is a possible indication of attentional influences on the human hearing system. Due to complications in analysis and recordings, the results were not statistically significant and conclusive evidence on this effect still remains to be found.
