Inner ear hair cells, Scanning Electron Microscope. Coloured scanning electron micrograph (SEM) of sensory hair cells from the inner ear. These cells are surrounded by a fluid called endolymph. As sound enters the ear it causes waves to form in the endolymph, which in turn cause the hairs to move. The movement is converted to an electrical signal that is passed on to the brain. Each crescent-shaped arrangement of hairs lies atop a single cell.

Detail of the stapes human middle ear bone showing ,left to right, the foot plate, the two crura, the neck, and the ligament of the stepedius muscle onto the neck. Commonly known as the stirrup, this ossicle transmits sound vibrations from the incus to the inner ear. SEM X40 **On Page Credit Required**

Detalle del yunque y estribo humanos huesos del oído medio. El yunque transmite las vibraciones sonoras desde el martillo hasta el estribo, que a continuación los transmite al oído interno. Los huesos del oído medio son los huesos más pequeños del cuerpo humano. SEM X45 ** En la página de créditos requeridos **

Incus and stapes (human middle ear bones). The incus transmits sound vibrations from the malleus to the stapes, which then transmits them to the inner ear. The middle ear bones are the smallest bones in the human body.

Cochlea

New Route to Hearing Loss Mapped Deficiency in a protein called pejvakin makes inner ear cells more vulnerable to sound, unable to brace themselves against oxidative stress stimulated by noise.
