Most of the extracellular fibers of the spiral ligament are associated with a distinct band of 'anchoring' cells which occur at the boundary between the spiral ligament and the otic capsule. These cells are characterized by parallel arrays of intracellular filaments which, along with the extracellular fibers, insert into electron dense, conical adhesion… CONTINUE READING
