In silico study on in vitro experiments to determine the electric membrane properties of a realistic cochlear model for electric field simulations on cochlear implants

Universität Rostock, 2018

Abstract: To further develop and optimise the design of cochlear implants, a numerical model with precise material properties and authentic geometry is required. Since simulation results strongly depend on the accuracy of the estimates of the electrical properties of cochlear membranes, it is important to have a reliable in vivo method for measuring electrical impedance changes in the cochlear compartments. This work is a preliminary attempt to model, simulate and analyse the behaviour of a novel in-vitro experimental system for conducting plausible in-vivo measurements on mammalian cochlea membranes.
