Can neurosphere production help restore inner ear transduction?

Abstract

T he exquisite sensitivity of the human ear to sound depends on the proper function of mechanosensory hair cells that transduce mechanical stimuli into electrical signals. Sound-induced deflections of bundles of actin-rich microvilli that protrude from the apical surface of hair cells evoke changes in the open probability of nonselective ion channels that… (More)
