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

Research output: Contribution to journalShort surveypeer-review

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.
