Pulsed wavelength-dependent laser stimulation of the inner ear.

Abstract

Conventional cochlear implants electrically stimulate the auditory nerve to bypass non-functional hair cells. The present study investigates optical stimulation as alternative to replace cochlear function. Although pulsed laser light is known to excite the organ of Corti, the interaction sites of pulsed lasers with the cellular elements of the inner ear… (More)
