Descriptor English: Otoacoustic Emissions, Spontaneous
Descriptor Spanish: Emisiones Otoacústicas Espontáneas
Descriptor emisiones otoacústicas espontáneas
Entry term(s) otoemisiones acústicas espontáneas
Scope note: Señales acústicas autogeneradas débiles a partir del oído interno (CÓCLEA) sin estimulación externa. Se puede grabar estas señales débiles en el CONDUCTO AUDITIVO y son indicativas de CÉLULAS CILIADAS AUDITIVAS EXTERNAS activas. Las emisiones otoacústicas espontáneas se encuentran en todas las clases de vertebrados terrestres.
