Paper Abstract

A small electrical potential generated by cochlear, when the ear is stimulated by sound, has been used to estimate the influence of the argon laser on cochlear activity in guinea pigs. The detected potentials were recorded prior to, during and after laser irradiation of bone of cochlear, Laser pulses of 0.5-1 s duration and peak power of 100-660 mW were used in the experiment. The number of pulses in the series and the time interval between single laser pulses were varied, too. Depending on the laser irradiation parameters the values of CM returned or no to the pre-impact value.
