The dynamic aspects of the suppression of spontaneous otoacoustic emissions by external tones are evaluated. A Van der Pol oscillator driven by an external tone is used as an interpretive model for data on the pulsed suppression of spontaneous emissions obtained from six female subjects. Typical results for both the onset of, and recovery from suppression yield 1/r1 (where -r1 is the negative linear component of the damping function) in the range of 2-25 ms. In accordance with the predictions of the model, (a) the relaxation time for the onset of suppression increases with the amount of suppression induced by the external tone, (b) the values of r1 and the amplitudes of the unsuppressed emissions exhibit an inverse correlation, (c) the values inferred for r1 are not significantly dependent on the frequency of the pulsed suppressor tone, and (d) the inferred r1 values are not significantly dependent upon the amount of suppression.
