Citing the ...

Study links low-frequency hearing to shape of the cochlea

... sounds, like the booming of a bass drum. This mechanical ordering of response from high to low frequencies works in the same fashion whether the cochlear tube is laid out straight or coiled in a spiral. But Manoussakis calculations predicted that the spiral shape causes the energy in the low-frequency ...

St. Jude study solves mystery of mammalian ears

... would be if the cells were absent. As sound waves race into the inner ear at hundreds of miles per hour, their energy—although dissipated by the cochlear fluid—generates waves in the fluid, somewhat like the tiny waves made by a pebble thrown into a pond. This energy causes the hair cell cilia in both ...

Scientists identify molecular cause for one form of deafness
