Knowledge of vibratory patterns in the cochlea is crucial to understanding the stimulation of mechanosensory cells. Experiments to determine the motion of the cochlear partition and surrounding fluid are extremely challenging. As a result, the motion data are incomplete and often contradictory. The bending mechanism of hair bundles, thought to be related to the shear motion and endolymphatic flow between the tectorial membrane (TM) and reticular lamina (RL), is controversial. We, therefore… CONTINUE READING
