The response of hair cells in the basal turn of the guinea-pig cochlea to tones.

Abstract

1. Intracellular recordings were made from inner and outer hair cells in the basal turn of the guinea-pig cochlea. The resting membrane potentials of the inner hair cells are more positive than -50 mV while those of outer hair cells are usually more negative than -70 mV. 2. At low frequencies the receptor potentials of inner hair cells are predominantly… (More)
