The Reissner's membrane (RM) was visualised by confocal microscopy in the isolated temporal bone of the guinea pig. The function of the organ was followed by measuring its physiological response. Static pressure applied in the basal coil caused a distention of the RM in the apical coil into the scala vestibuli. The sensitivity to a test tone was reduced. When the pressure was relieved, the RM returned to its original position and the response recovered. If the increased pressure was maintained… CONTINUE READING
