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. Jont Allen
