Much less known than Bertrand Russell is Georg von Bekesy (1899-1972).
Georg von Bekesy of Harvard University for his studies of the inner ear.
Tests conducted during phase 1 included tinnitus LM, tinnitus PM, MML, RI, Bekesy, and forced-choice double staircase (FCDS).
The first automatic audiometer was developed by Bekesy in 1947, and his technique is referred to as Bekesy audiometry [27].
Testing with the TES included threshold, LM, PM, MML, RI, FCDS, and Bekesy testing.
Measures of central tendency and spread were computed from the Bekesy continuous and pulse tone responses at both 1 kHz and at the PM frequency.
FCDS results clearly indicated poor comprehension of the testing concept, while the Bekesy testing added excessive length to the test battery.
The Bekesy and RI components were removed from the test battery.

This principle of function of mammalian cochlea was firstly described by Georg von Bekesy and it was also verified by experimental measurements (Bekesy, 1960).
The work was supported by grants from the National Science Foundation (GB4315, GB8201, BS81-07289) and the National Institutes of Health (NS-11808), and by grants to the Bekesy Laboratory of Neurobiology by the Ida Russell Cades Fund of the University of Hawaii Foundation.
