Abstract

This composite article is intended to give the experts in the field of cochlear mechanics an opportunity to voice their personal opinion on the one mechanism they believe dominates cochlear amplification in mammals. A collection of these ideas are presented here for the auditory community and others interested in the cochlear amplifier. Each expert has given their own personal view on the topic and at the end of their commentary they have suggested several experiments that would be required for the decisive mechanism underlying the cochlear amplifier. These experiments are presently lacking but if successfully performed would have an enormous impact on our understanding of the cochlear amplifier.
