Mammalian hearing owes its remarkable sensitivity and frequency selectivity to a local mechanical feedback process within the cochlea. Cochlear outer hair cells (OHCs) function as the key elements in the feedback loop in which the fast somatic motility of OHCs is thought to be the source of cochlear amplification. An alternative view is that amplification arises from active hair-bundle movement, similar to that seen in nonmammalian hair cells. We measured voltage-evoked hair-bundle motions in… CONTINUE READING
