Rapid mechanical stimulation of inner-ear hair cells by photonic pressureSanjeewa Abeytunge, Francesco Gianoli, A. James Hudspeth & Andrei S. Kozlov
Hair cells, the receptors of the inner ear, detect sounds by transducing mechanical vibrations into electrical signals. From the top surface of each hair cell protrudes a mechanical antenna, the hair bundle, which the cell uses to detect and amplify auditory stimuli, thus sharpening frequency selectivity and providing a broad dynamic range. Current methods for mechanically stimulating hair bundles are too slow to encompass the frequency range of mammalian hearing and are plagued by inconsistencies....
