This paper presents an efficient method to compute the numerical solutions of transmission-line (TL) cochlear models, and its application on the model of Verhulst et al. The stability region of the model is extended by adopting a variable step numerical method to solve the system of ordinary differential equations that describes it, and by adopting an adaptive scheme to take in account variations in the system status within each numerical step. The presented method leads to improve simulations numerical accuracy and large computational savings, leading to employ TL models for more extensive simulations than currently possible.
