  • Dynamic displacement of normal and detached semicircular canal cupula 

    Rabbitt, Richard D.; Breneman, Kathryn D.; King, Curtis; Yamauchi, Angela M.; Boyle, Richard; Highstein, Stephen M. (Springer, 2009-06-10)
    The dynamic displacement of the semicircular canal cupula and modulation of afferent nerve discharge were measured simultaneously in response to physiological stimuli in vivo. The adaptation time constant(s) of normal ...
  • Ionic composition of endolymph and perilymph in the inner ear of the oyster toadfish, Opsanus tau 

    Ghanem, Tamer A.; Breneman, Kathryn D.; Rabbitt, Richard D.; Brown, H. Mack (Marine Biological Laboratory, 2008-02)
    The concentrations of free Na+, K+, Ca2+, and Cl-in endolymph and perilymph from the inner ear of the oyster toadfish, Opsanus tau, were measured in vivo using double-barreled ion-selective electrodes. Perilymph concentrations ...
  • Power efficiency of outer hair cell somatic electromotility 

    Rabbitt, Richard D.; Clifford, Sarah; Breneman, Kathryn D.; Farrell, Brenda; Brownell, William E. (Public Library of Science, 2009-07-24)
    Cochlear outer hair cells (OHCs) are fast biological motors that serve to enhance the vibration of the organ of Corti and increase the sensitivity of the inner ear to sound. Exactly how OHCs produce useful mechanical power ...
