Abstract

In this study, we propose an energy depot model for the active oscillation of the basilar membrane which successfully describes both active and protective mechanisms. One of the main results is that thermal noise in the absence of external stimulation can be amplified leading to the spontaneous basilar membrane oscillation. Our model produces better agreement with nonlinear compressive data [1].
