Biophysics in audiology. A theoretical study

E. P. Gaudin

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


Of even greater importance than the anatomical terms, are biophysical, physiological and functional terms. Unfortunately they are not controlled and regulated. In otology some of them are obsolete and discongruent regarding modern science development. Others have been proposed without being justified theoretically or proved experimentally and are not correct. There is a danger of becoming accustomed to them to such a degree that they become trivial and come to be considered as axiomatic. If they are erroneous, or incorrectly understood they may create a hindrance to further development of science or may lead scientific investigations into wrong directions.
