Probing the Cochlear Amplifier by Immobilizing Molecular Motors of Sensory Hair Cells

Research output: Contribution to journalShort survey

Abstract

The location and longitudinal extent of cochlear biomechanical amplification has been an open question. In this issue of Neuron, Fisher et al. (2012) demonstrate that sound-induced vibration is amplified over a short region-about one wavelength-prior to the response peak.
