1. With the use of an in vitro preparation of the guinea pig temporal bone, in which the apical turns of the cochlea are exposed, the mechanical and electrical responses of the cochlea in the low-frequency regions were studied during sound stimulation. 2. The mechanical characteristics were investigated in the fourth and third turns of the cochlea with the use of laser heterodyne interferometry, which allows the vibratory responses of both sensory and supporting cells to be recorded.
