Cellular mechanisms of hearing

Embed Cite

This laboratory works on the cellular mechanisms of hearing and are particularly interested in outer hair cells of the cochlea. These cells are responsible for selectively amplifying the sound entering the ear and act by producing forces in response to a sound stimulus acting upon them. The team are investigating how the motor works by using electrophysiology, imaging and other biophysical techniques.
