Abstract

Using optical low coherence interferometry, the acoustically evoked vibration patterns of the basilar membrane (BM) and reticular lamina (RL) in the first turn of living guinea pigs were measured as function of the radial location. It was demonstrated that the vibration of the BM varied widely in amplitude, but little in phase across the width of the partition, while the RL had a different vibration pattern compared with the BM.
