Longitudinal comparisons of IHC ac and dc receptor potentials recorded from the guinea pig cochlea.

Recordings were made from inner hair cells (IHC) at three locations distributed in the apical half of the guinea pig cochlea. Longitudinal variations in ac and dc components of receptor potentials produced in response to single-tone inputs were studied to further understand the ways in which IHCs communicate with their innervating afferent dendrites. While… CONTINUE READING
