INTRODUCTION
This Research Report is shorler lhan those published in recent years. For some lime the
University's Committee on Research and Graduate Studies has doubted whether a substantial
descriptive volume - the 1976 edition was more lhan half as long again as that for 1977 - could be
easily justified as the official record of the University's research activities. Such a report took an
unconscionable time to produce. Perhaps it also gave more information concerning each project
than the general reader sought, though rather less than the specialist in each particular discipline
needed.
The Committee concluded, after some debate, that the old form of report attempted to fulfil too
many functions al once. As a formal record of research topics, of the staff involved, of theses in
progress and completed, and of publications it was insufficiently systematic, while the attempt to
describe research in progress in a brief compass was difficult for the writer and inadequate for the
reader. This year the report has been reduced to a record of basic information concerning the
research activities and interests of departments, set out as clearly and concisely as possible. The
categories are as follows:
• the names of members of a department actively engaged in research:
• a list of research topics in progress;
• published work:
• theses passed for higher degrees;
• theses in progress: and
• a list of substantial grants.
At the same time the Committee is encouraging departments to produce, as separate publications,
more extended descriptions of their predominant research interests and activities.
The change has not been welcomed by all within the University, and if any of our external readers
care to comment on whether they find thc new format more or less useful it would be helpful to know
their views. Certainly it should be possible to discover, from this volume, the fields of interest in each
department in sufficient detail to facilitate further inquiry.
The Report reveals, perhaps more clearly than in the past, the variety and scale ofthe research
efforts of a major Australian university today. A mere two decades ago no institution in Australia
approached even remotely such a level of creative activity. The research capacity which has been
developed in recent years, in universities and elsewhere in Australia, is an important national asset.
In these difficult limes it must be nurtured if it is not to waste away.

1. CORNEA - During 1977 research development was completed on a new and revolutionary system of culling
the cornea. The instrument known as a Contact Lens Corneal Cutter is now being manufactured under licence
to Melbourne University by the Grieshaber company in Switzerland. The C.L.C.C. system simplifies existing
methods of corneal grafting, offers a very rapid and safe technique for cataract operations and opens up new
possibilities for basic research into corneal graft rejection and drug effects in corneal tissue.

RESEARCH TOPICS IN PROGRESS
n 1977 research progressed toward the development of a cochlear implant for deaf patients. Support from the
National Health and Medical Research Council and the ATVO Nerve Deafness Appeal continued.
1. Surgical anatomy and histology - cochlear implant - G. M . Clark.
This study has shown that an electrode array can be inserted around the turns of the cochlea without
significant loss of the auditory nerve fibres providing infection does not occur.
2. The development of a multiple-electrode array for cochlear implantation - R. Black. G. M . Clark, 1. C.
Forster, J. F. Patrick, B. Pyman.
Further work is being undertaken to examine the mechanical properties of thin films of metal and the
mechanical and histological properties of plastics for the realization of a robust electrode.
3. The development of the receiver-stimulator component of a cochlear implant prosthesis - I . C . Forster,
D. J. Dewhurst.
This has now been developed and tested. It has a dual transfer system with independent inductive links for
both power and dala. It has a stimulating pulse shape that minimizes the production of toxic substrates and
loss of metal. Independent stimulation of 10-15 electrodes can also be carried out. Further work is being done
to improve the design and restrict the electrical stimuli to groups of nerve fibres.
4. Packaging of the electronics — J. F. Patrick.
Methods for hermetically sealing the receiver-stimulator have been developed and tested. Work to
miniaturize the device further is proceeding.
5. Connector — cochlear implant — J. F. Patrick.
Work has been undertaken to develop a special connector that will enable the receiver-stimulator to be
connected to the electrode array in a biological environment.
6. Cochlear modelling — Y. C. Tong, C. J. Pengilley, G. M . Clark.
Two mathematical models of the cochlea have been developed. The first model includes coupling between
adjacent parts of the model partition, and hydrodynamical considerations. Thc response characterics of the
first model indicate that coupling between adjacent parts of the cochlear partition by an elastic element is a
possible mechanism that is responsible for the amplitude/phase notches in the frequency response of the
cochlear partition. The second model is a functional model that simulates the nonlinear amplitude behaviour
of the cochlear partition. The other nonlinear responses (click, phase, twortone responses) of this second
model are consistent with physiological findings.
7. Speech Analysis and Synthesis - Y. C. Tong, J. F. Patrick, G. M. Clark, J. L. Gwyiher, R. J. Walkerden.
A serial-parallel terminal-analog speech synthesizer was developed, and then realized using analog and digital
hardware. The synthesizer provides the user with a choice of three configurations of formant filters: serial,
parallel, or a combination of both. External inputs lo the synthesizer are in digital formal. Thesc inputs
control the operation and specify the parameter values of the synthesizer for a synthetic sound. Control and
parametric information is inputed at a pre-selected frame rate (externally controllable from 100 Hz to
10 kHz in 8 steps). The information is updated at the beginning of each frame period.
8. Behavioural studies on frequency coding and electrical stimulation ofthe cochlea of cats — T. Nienhuvs and
G. M. Clark.
Frequency discrimination was measured behaviourally before and after drug-induced lesions of cochlear hair
cells in the cat. Discrimination was unaffected by complete loss of outer hair cells provided that at least 50%
of inner hair cells were intact. Thus inner hair cells are important for frequency discrimination, and they can
function normally in this regard without the influence of outer hair cells.
9. Electrophysiological studies of the cochlea as an electrical transmission line - R. Black, G. M. Clark.
A three dimensional computer model of the resistance patterns in the cochlea has been constructed by
resistively coupling together sixteen two dimensional cochlea cross section models. This model shows that
when currents are introduced into the cochlea with a variety of stimulus electrode configurations, the
potentials in the hair cell-nerve ending region of the organ of Corti may exhibit attenuation characteristics
quite different to those measured in the scala fluids. The current distribution of the hair cell-nerve ending
region was measured bv examining the excitability characteristics of units in the auditory nerve and inferior

colliculus during stimulation of the cat's scala tympani. In the basal turn it was found that monopolar
stimulation with reference electrode in neck muscle produced gross excitation of the auditory nerve with
attenuation of less than ldB/mm cochlear length. When the reference electrode was in scala vestibuli, the
attenuation is approximately 1.8 dB/mm and with bipolar stimulation of the scala tympani the attenuation
was 3-4 dB/mm. These results are in close agreement with the model predictions. It appears that these
generally small attenuation values are due to longitudinal shunting of the current along the spiral ligament.
The model also predicts that the scala tympani potential would he expected to show significantly greater
attenuation for each of these stimulus configurations.
Speech perception studies - B. O'Loughlin, Y. C. Tong and G. M . Clark.
A study is being undertaken to determine whether the relative format amplitudes may be utilized as cues for
the identification of phonemes when temporal and frequency cues are ambiguous.
An epidemiological study of industrial deafness — M . Peril, F. W. Rickards, D. S. McMahon.
Studies are being undertaken to establish an unbiased estimate of the auditory thresholds of males and
females of various ages - an unbiased estimate ofthe proportion of deafness in the community lhat is due to
noise. Also, the effect, if any, of smoking and/or regular consumption of alcohol on the auditory threshold.
Tinnitus — Q. Bailey.
Research is being conducted into the cause and treatment of tinnitus, and attempts to localize the site of
origin of tinnitus and to evaluate possible treatment methods are being undertaken at a recently established
tinnitus clinic.
Total organ laryngeal section — J. E. Delahunly.
Corneal sections of adult larynxes is continuing with particular regard to endo-laryngeal invasion of the fibros
anatomical compartments, the results being applied retrospectively lo the patient's clinical presentation.

B. URBAN METEOROLOGY
Work continues on the computer implementation of an analytical, linear, two-dimensional heat-island seabreeze model, following the general mathematical form of Hess.
Temperature and wind soundings were obtained at Laverton during the past 11 years; surface winds from up to
17 anemometers in the Melbourne region have been computed.
Analysis ofthe surface wind data was continued in 1977 to build up a climatology of light wind conditions, and
characteristics of these periods.
