Auditory mailing list:
The use of the term "Cochlear Amplifier" is a classical example
of mixing up an interpretation with the experimental effect.
The research community, at the mechanics of hearing meetings,
has somewhat agreed that the term "cochlear amplifier" should mean
a power gain due to wave propagation on the basilar membrane
(Allen and Fahey, JASA July 1992, page 178--).
If this is not what people mean when they use the term, then
we had better discuss it, or else we will have a major case of
bad communication.
