"Scientists in our field have long been looking for the molecular signals that trigger the formation of the hair cells
that sense and transmit sound," says Angelika Doetzlhofer, Ph.D., associate professor of neuroscience at the Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine.
Monges-Hernandez, "Spatial gradients in the size of inner hair cell
ribbons emerge before the onset of hearing in rats," Journal of the Association for Research in Otolaryngology, vol.
General cell and stereocilium morphology in outer hair cells
were evaluated in superficial anatomy (Table 1) (10).
In this study, we successfully isolated and cultured neural stem cells from the olfactory epithelium of rat and then differentiated to hair cells
of inner ear.
These data strongly suggest that pretreatment of YMRE could be a promising approach in protecting hair cells
To illustrate the effect of Type 2 diabetes on outer hair cells
for right and left ear is same or different
Various approaches are necessary to determine the steps needed for hair cell
repair in the OC and restoration of auditory functions.
The continued development of fluorescent staining techniques, which are faster and less expensive than electron microscopy, should aid researchers in expediting the analysis of hair cell
morphology in marine invertebrates.
"The finding that newborn hair cells
regenerate spontaneously is novel," senior author Dr.
A normal otoacoustic emission reading is a sign that the outer hair cells
are working no Fia.
"This is an area that's a bit more futuristic and ultimately restoring the hair cells
will be the cure."
The hair cell
needed the gel-like capsule--called the cupula--to overcome these challenges.
