Changes in the mechanical tuning characteristics of the hearing organ following acoustic overstimulation.

Abstract

An in vitro preparation of the guinea-pig temporal bone was used to study the effects of acoustic overstimulation on the mechanical tuning characteristics of the inner ear. Using laser heterodyne interferometry, the vibratory responses of selected sensory and supporting cells within the hearing organ were measured in response to acoustic signals applied to… (More)
