Otoacoustic emissions are sounds emitted by the cochlea, basically deriving from the active micromechanical properties of the outer hair cells of the organ of Corti. As they can be recorded painlessly and non-intrusively, they provide a good means of studying human cochlear functioning. In this report, the main types of otoacoustic emission are described, with their characteristics and relation to cochlear functioning. The contribution of otoacoustic emission studies to the physiology of the medial olivocochlear system is discussed, this being the only sensitive and non-intrusive way of studying this system, the function of which remains uncertain.
