Tone Decay and Hearing Threshold Level in Sensorineural Loss Tone decay was assessed by the Bekesy and modified Rosenberg procedures in audiological patients with sensorineural-type loss for whom there was no neurological evidence of retrocochlear pathology. Thirty-five subjects were tested at 500 Hz, 97 at 2000 Hz, and 92 at 4000 Hz. Tone decay tended to increase with increased ... Research Article

Tone decay was assessed by the Bekesy and modified Rosenberg procedures in audiological patients with sensorineural-type loss for whom there was no neurological evidence of retrocochlear pathology. Thirty-five subjects were tested at 500 Hz, 97 at 2000 Hz, and 92 at 4000 Hz. Tone decay tended to increase with increased hearing threshold level for both tests at all three frequencies, with low but significant correlations at two of the three frequencies for each test. There were no systematic differences between the Bekesy and modified Rosenberg procedures with regard to overall level, frequency effects, or hearing threshold effects. A low but significant correlation was obtained between the two procedures at all three frequencies.
