Supporting cells contribute to control of hearing sensitivity. (1/77)

The mammalian hearing organ, the organ of Corti, was studied in an in vitro preparation of the guinea pig temporal bone. As in vivo, the hearing organ responded with an electrical potential, the cochlear microphonic potential, when stimulated with a test tone. After exposure to intense sound, the response to the test tone was reduced. The electrical response either recovered within 10-20 min or remained permanently reduced, thus corresponding to a temporary or sustained loss of sensitivity. Using laser scanning confocal microscopy, stimulus-induced changes of the cellular structure of the hearing organ were simultaneously studied. The cells in the organ were labeled with two fluorescent probes, a membrane dye and a cytoplasm dye, showing enzymatic activity in living cells. Confocal microscopy images were collected and compared before and after intense sound exposure. The results were as follows. (1) The organ of Corti could be divided into two different structural entities in terms of their susceptibility to damage: an inner, structurally stable region comprised of the inner hair cell with its supporting cells and the inner and outer pillar cells; and an outer region that exhibited dynamic structural changes and consisted of the outer hair cells and the third Deiters' cell with its attached Hensen's cells. (2) Exposure to intense sound caused the Deiters' cells and Hensen's cells to move in toward the center of the cochlear turn. (3) This event coincided with a reduced sensitivity to the test tone (i.e., reduced cochlear microphonic potential). (4) The displacement and sensitivity loss could be reversible. It is concluded that these observations have relevance for understanding the mechanisms behind hearing loss after noise exposure and that the supporting cells take an active part in protection against trauma during high-intensity sound exposure.  (+info)

The effects of tone exposure on the inner ear functions in the guinea pig: impact tone vs. steady state tone. (2/77)

The damage-risk criterion (DRC) for hearing supposes that sound exposure with equal energy implies equal risk for noise-induced hearing loss (NIHL). We measured cochlear microphonics (CM), compound action potential (CAP), endocochlear potential (EP) and K+ ion concentration in the scala media, to see if the same level of Leq24h (impact tone and steady state tone) induced the same physiological changes in the inner ear function or not. Regarding the equal energy principle (EEP), we also examined if the EEP is appropriate or not at exposure of moderate level tone. We also checked how the time interval between impact tones affects or not the inner ear functions at the same Leq24h tone exposure. Therefore we used exposure at 1 pulse/second or 1 pulse/3 seconds and steady state tone exposure at Leq24h=90, 85 and 80 dB. The results are the following. Both steady state and impact tone exposure causes change of the electrophysiological data. First, CM maximum output voltage after exposure to impact tone of 115 dB (Leq24h=90 dB) was lower than after exposure to a 8 kHz steady state tone of 90 dB. CAP threshold (below 10 microV) obtained after the 115 and 110 dB exposure of impact tone were 5-10 dB higher than that of steady state tone of 90 dB. The negative EP induced by impact tone exposures showed the same tendency as the CM experiments. Having more frequent pulses (1 pulse/second vs. to 1 pulse/3 seconds) showed more inhibition. The K+ concentration time course remained similar to the control when the Leq24h was low (80 dB). Impact tone exposure induced stronger effects to the inner ear at exposure of moderate level tone than that of steady state tone of Leq24h.  (+info)

Comparative study of effects of impact tone and steady state tone exposure: EP and concentration of K+ ion and Na+ ion. (3/77)

To test the adequacy of equal energy principle (EEP), guinea pigs were exposed to impact tone. The changes in electrophysiological data, namely endocochlear potential (EP) and the change in K+ ion and Na+ ion concentrations in the endolymph were investigated. The frequency of impact tone was 1 pulse/second or 1 pulse/3 seconds. The steady state tone had Leq24h = 100, 95, 90 or 85 dB, and impact tone had Leq24h = 95, 90 or 85 dB. The results are the following. Both steady state and impact tone exposure cause changes of electrophysiological data. The effects on the absolute value of negative EP induced by impact tone exposures were smaller than that of steady state tone of the same Leq. The rate of pulses was also an important factor for impact tone exposure. Impact tone exposure of 1 pulse/second caused smaller absolute value of negative EP than that of 1 pulse/3 seconds. The K+ ion concentration time course in the endolymph remained similar to the control (Exp. 1) only in Exp. 8 (85 dB; the lowest steady state noise exposure in our experiments), but no decrease in the K+ ion concentration was detected in the other experiments, suggesting an alteration in the K+ ion flow. The Na+ ion concentration time course was also influenced showing no increase in Na+ ion concentration compared to the control (Exp. 1c) and the lowest steady-state exposure experiment (Exp. 8c). Our experimental results suggest that both the K+ ion and Na+ ion movement are altered by tone exposure. We found also that the different types of noise exposure with the same Leq value does not exhibit the same changes. Leq24h is not an accurate damage risk criteria.  (+info)

A targeted deletion in alpha-tectorin reveals that the tectorial membrane is required for the gain and timing of cochlear feedback. (4/77)

alpha-tectorin is an extracellular matrix molecule of the inner ear. Mice homozygous for a targeted deletion in a-tectorin have tectorial membranes that are detached from the cochlear epithelium and lack all noncollagenous matrix, but the architecture of the organ of Corti is otherwise normal. The basilar membranes of wild-type and alpha-tectorin mutant mice are tuned, but the alpha-tectorin mutants are 35 dB less sensitive. Basilar membrane responses of wild-type mice exhibit a second resonance, indicating that the tectorial membrane provides an inertial mass against which outer hair cells can exert forces. Cochlear microphonics recorded in alpha-tectorin mutants differ in both phase and symmetry relative to those of wild-type mice. Thus, the tectorial membrane ensures that outer hair cells can effectively respond to basilar membrane motion and that feedback is delivered with the appropriate gain and timing required for amplification.  (+info)

KCNJ10 (Kir4.1) potassium channel knockout abolishes endocochlear potential. (5/77)

Stria vascularis of the cochlea generates the endocochlear potential and secretes K(+). K(+) is the main charge carrier and the endocochlear potential the main driving force for the sensory transduction that leads to hearing. Stria vascularis consists of two barriers, marginal cells that secrete potassium and basal cells that are coupled via gap junctions to intermediate cells. Mice lacking the KCNJ10 (Kir4.1) K(+) channel in strial intermediate cells did not generate an endocochlear potential. Endolymph volume and K(+) concentration ([K(+)]) were reduced. These studies establish that the KCNJ10 K(+) channel provides the molecular mechanism for generation of the endocochlear potential in concert with other transport pathways that establish the [K(+)] difference across the channel. KCNJ10 is also a limiting pathway for K(+) secretion.  (+info)

Loud sound-induced changes in cochlear mechanics. (6/77)

To investigate the inner ear response to intense sound and the mechanisms behind temporary threshold shifts, anesthetized guinea pigs were exposed to tones at 100-112 dB SPL. Basilar membrane vibration was measured using laser velocimetry, and the cochlear microphonic potential, compound action potential of the auditory nerve, and local electric AC potentials in the organ of Corti were used as additional indicators of cochlear function. After exposure to a 12-kHz intense tone, basilar membrane vibrations in response to probe tones at the characteristic frequency of the recording location (17 kHz) were transiently reduced. This reduction recovered over the course of 50 ms in most cases. Organ of Corti AC potentials were also reduced and recovered with a time course similar to the basilar membrane. When using a probe tone at either 1 or 4 kHz, organ of Corti AC potentials were unaffected by loud sound, indicating that transducer channels remained intact. In most experiments, both the basilar membrane and the cochlear microphonic response to the 12-kHz overstimulation was constant throughout the duration of the intense stimulus, despite a large loss of cochlear sensitivity. It is concluded that the reduction of basilar membrane velocity that followed loud sound was caused by changes in cochlear amplification and that the cochlear response to intense stimulation is determined by the passive mechanical properties of the inner ear structures.  (+info)

NompC TRP channel required for vertebrate sensory hair cell mechanotransduction. (7/77)

The senses of hearing and balance in vertebrates rely on the sensory hair cells (HCs) of the inner ear. The central element of the HC's transduction apparatus is a mechanically gated ion channel of unknown identity. Here we report that the zebrafish ortholog of Drosophila no mechanoreceptor potential C (nompC), which encodes a transient receptor potential (TRP) channel, is critical for HC mechanotransduction. In zebrafish larvae, nompC is selectively expressed in sensory HCs. Morpholino-mediated removal of nompC function eliminated transduction-dependent endocytosis and electrical responses in HCs, resulting in larval deafness and imbalance. These observations indicate that nompC encodes a vertebrate HC mechanotransduction channel.  (+info)

Stiffness of the gerbil basilar membrane: radial and longitudinal variations. (8/77)

Experimental data on the mechanical properties of the tissues of the mammalian cochlea are essential for understanding the frequency- and location-dependent motion patterns that result in response to incoming sound waves. Within the cochlea, sound-induced vibrations are transduced into neural activity by the organ of Corti, the gross motion of which is dependent on the motion of the underlying basilar membrane. In this study we present data on stiffness of the gerbil basilar membrane measured at multiple positions within a cochlear cross section and at multiple locations along the length of the cochlea. A basic analysis of these data using relatively simple models of cochlear mechanics reveals our most important result: the experimentally measured longitudinal stiffness gradient at the middle of the pectinate zone of the basilar membrane (4.43 dB/mm) can account for changes of best frequency along the length of the cochlea. Furthermore, our results indicate qualitative changes of stiffness-deflection curves as a function of radial position; in particular, there are differences in the rate of stiffness growth with increasing tissue deflection. Longitudinal coupling within the basilar membrane/organ of Corti complex is determined to have a space constant of 21 microm in the middle turn of the cochlea. The bulk of our data was obtained in the hemicochlea preparation, and we include a comparison of this set of data to data obtained in vivo.  (+info)

It has been estimated that over one third of subjects with AN are affected by peripheral neuropathies [6]. In addition, optic neuropathies and other CNS disorders have been found in association with AN (non-isolated AN, Table 1). In this group of subjects the hearing disorder is underlain by several genetic defects, all resulting in neuronal loss and demyelination in peripheral and/or cranial nerves, and the site of the lesion is invariably postsynaptic.. AN has been identified at relatively high frequency in patients affected by Charcot-Marie-Tooth (CMT) disease. The first gene associated with AN in this group was the myelin protein zero (MPZ) gene [24] encoding a protein included in the compact myelin that plays a crucial role in myelin formation and adhesion. A missense mutation in MPZ was identified in a family affected by dominant AN and demyelinating sensorimotor neuropathy [24]. Post-mortem examination carried out on one member of this family revealed preserved hair cells in the cochlea, ...
Assessments of CAP amplitude (Fig. 2) and intraaxonal dye diffusion (Fig. 3) show that direct application of PEG to crush-severed sciatic nerves usually (97% of all attempts) rapidly restores physiological and morphological continuity to at least some axons in the sciatic nerve. In fact, continuity may be restored to many proximal and distal axonal halves (with unknown specificity) since CAP amplitudes of PEG-fused nerves on average are 50 to 89% of CAP amplitudes of intact-control or sham-operated nerves. FF asymmetry scores (Fig. 4) provide quantitative assessment of hindlimb motor behavior and show significantly faster recovery of functional behavior associated with direct application of PEG to crush-severed sciatic nerves. This finding for FF asymmetry scores is consistent with our measures of physiological and morphological continuity.. Video observations of FF trials and of open field trials also show rapid behavioral improvement associated with direct application of PEG to crush-severed ...

Mice homozygous for the jerker spontaneous mutation (|i|Espn|sup|je|/sup||/i|) show behavior typical of the circling mutants - head-tossing, circling, and hyperactivity. Homozygous mutant mice are deaf from birth and have no detectable stimulus-related cochlear potential at any stage. The abnormal behavior and deafness are associated with postnatal degeneration of the sensory cells of the cochlea and the sacculus and utriculus in homozygotes. The primary influence of the jerker gene appears to be on the apical hair cells, not development of neural structures. Heterozygous jerker mice undergo a similar type of degeneration, but the onset is delayed. Auditory brainstem response is totally absent in homozygotes while heterozygous mice undergo a progressive impairment with age.|br||br|Flexed tail homozygotes can be identified hematologically as earlyas embryonic day 13 and are detectably paler than normal by embryonic day 16, with most paler than normal by embryonic day 15.

Canton has recently introduced eight new loudspeakers in its Ergo line, including a new powered subwoofer and seven full-range models featuring new crossover. New models include a trio of three-way floorstanders, two bookshelf speakers, two 2-1/2-way center channel speakers, and a 200-Watt powered subwoofer, and all are available in silver lacquer, black, beech, and cherry wood veneer finishes. The new Ergo full-range models incorporate improved crossover networks that are based on technology developed for the companys signature Karat Reference 2 DC loudspeaker system. These changes include the use of ICW polypropylene capacitors, which have led to a marked reduction in dielectric absorption or "memory" effects giving the models improved transient response and detail. The new crossover design also has a significant reduction in microphonics designed to improve mid-range and high-frequency reproduction. The new Ergo center channel speakers are 2-1/2-way designs optimized for horizontal mounting. ...
Subject: biophysics of infrasound From: Eliot Handelman ,eliot(at)SUNRISE.CC.MCGILL.CA, Date: Thu, 27 Jan 1994 17:19:34 EST Greetings, Im trying to locate research on the biophysical effects of infrasound. A few years ago I collected a series of citations -- about 25? from JASA, primarily from the late 50s and early 60s. Princeton cataloged several of these but they were all missing. It turned out that these papers were reclassified during 80s, and my efforts to get them through the DoD met with no success, supposedly because Princeton did not wish to comply with Dods restricted materials protocol. Can anyone tell me what is so interesting about biophysical effects of infrasound that merits classification? Best, -- eliot ...
Starting in 2011, infrasound sensors became a standard component and were installed at each new USArray Transportable Array (TA) site. Currently, with over 400 sensors, TA acts as a large infrasound array that continuously samples the wavefield of atmospheric acoustic sources. To support this new data set, the IRIS Data Management Center (DMC) has developed two infrasound data products: the TA Infrasound Reference Event Database (TAIRED) and TA Infrasound Detections (TAID). These two data products are designed to provide insight and tools for researchers to begin working with this large, and somewhat unique, new data set.. TAIRED (http://www.iris.edu/spud/infrasoundevent) is a user-supported evolving infrasound reference event depository where researchers can contribute to and find infrasound events for their research. This database currently holds 59 events including one meteorite, seven explosions, and 12 rocket launches. For each event, metadata, infrasound and seismic record sections, ...

Fish possess two separate systems for detection of low-level sound and water motions in the low-frequency range: the inner ear and the lateral line. The relative roles of these systems in normal fish behaviour is still not clear. There is, for instance, a lack of experimental evidence showing the involvement of the lateral line and the inner ear in detection of infrasound, in directional hearing in the near field, and in detection and attack of swimming prey below the surface. To provide a useful tool for such studies, we have developed a pharmacological method for selective and reversible blocking of the lateral line in the roach (Rutilus rutilus). By recording multi-unit activity from the lateral line nerve and microphonic potentials from the inner ear, we have shown that cobalt ions in the external water may completely block the mechanosensitivity of the lateral line without affecting the utricular microphonic activity. This inhibiting effect of Co2+ is antagonized by Ca2+, making the ratio ...

Select-A-Strike clappers are adjustable by rotating the clapper screw slightly counter-clockwise until the clapper is free to rotate. Rotate the clapper to the desired position and retighten the screw.. Quick-Adjust clappers (See Fig. 3) are adjustable without loosening the clapper screw. In fact, the clapper screw should never be turned. This screw is locked to the clapper shaft by a special chemical bond between the screw and shaft. To adjust, rotate clapper until it clicks into the desired position. NOTE: DO NOT TAKE YOUR QUICK-ADJUST CLAPPER APART. THEY MUST BE RETURNED TO THE FACTORY FOR ANY REPAIRS NEEDED.. Try it! On all bells C8 and below in pitch, three decidedly different impact tones can be achieved. This permits a selection of mellow or more brilliant tones to be generated in your bells, according to your tonal preference. These options provide a soft mellow strike tone designated by the letter S imprinted on the clapper insert, a medium tone designated by M on the insert, and ...
Below about 50 kHz the level of ambient noise in the sea increases continuously towards lower frequencies. In the infrasound range the spectral slope is particularly steep. This low-frequency noise may propagate long distances with little attenuation, causing a directional pattern of infrasound in the sea. Using a standing-wave acoustic tube, we have studied the sensitivity of cod to infrasound down to 0.1 Hz by means of the cardiac conditioning technique. The threshold values, measured as particle acceleration, showed a steady decline towards lower frequencies below 10 Hz, reaching a value close to 10(−5)ms-2 at 0.1 Hz. The spectrum level at 0.1 Hz in the sea ranges between 120 and 180 dB (re 1 microPa), with corresponding particle accelerations from less than 10(−6) to more than 10(−4)ms-2. The sensitivity of cod is thus sufficient to detect the highest levels of ambient infrasound, and we put forward the hypothesis that fish may utilize information about the infrasound pattern in the ...

TY - JOUR. T1 - Intracellular Potential Changes of Cortis Organ With Anoxia. AU - Nuttall, Alfred L.. AU - Lawrence, Merle. PY - 1979/10. Y1 - 1979/10. N2 - Intracellular measurements of the resting cell membrane potentials of guinea pig Cortis organ were made in order to determine the sensitivity of this cell potential to anoxic hypoxia (a lowered oxygen state due to lack of respiratory oxygen) and to establish differences according to cell types or morphologic regions of the sensory epithelium. The negative cell potentials measured from successful electrode penetrations were found to be relatively more stable and resistant to change during a 120-s period of anoxia than was the positive endocochlear potential. The intracellular resting potentials were also much slower to recover after resumption of respiration. Data obtained from various cells in two different regions of Cortis organ indicate that Cortis organ is receiving oxygen from both the perilymph and the endolymph. An iontophoretic ...
Auditory evoked potentials (AEP) are highly demanded during the whole process of equipping patients with cochlear implants (CI). They play an essential role in preoperative diagnostics, intraoperative testing, and postoperative monitoring of auditory performance and success. The versatility of AEPs is essentially enhanced by their property to be evokable by acoustic as well as electric stimuli. Thus, the electric responses of the auditory system following acoustic stimulation and recorded by the conventional surface technique as well as by transtympanic derivation from the promontory (Electrocochleography [ECochG]) are used for the quantitative determination of hearing loss and, additionally, electrically evoked compound actions potentials (ECAP) can be recorded with the intracochlear electrodes of the implant just adjacent to the stimulation electrode to check the functional integrity of the device and its coupling to the auditory system ...

A feverish quest exists to uncover the events that lead to cochlear amplification in mammals. The role of the OHC is certainly paramount, and we now have identified many componentsthat form the basis of the cells unique contribution. In my mind, a few observations leadthe story on this hot topic, including the molecular identification of the OHC motor, its modulation by anions and the demonstration of the motors anion transport capabilities. Here I review some of this recent work.. ...

Although outer hair cells (OHCs) play a key role in cochlear amplification, it is not fully understood how they amplify sound signals by more than 100 fold. Two competing or possibly complementary mechanisms, stereocilia-based and somatic electromotility-based amplification, have been considered. Lacking knowledge about the exceptionally rich protein networks in the OHC plasma membrane, as well as related protein-protein interactions, limits our understanding of cochlear function. Therefore, we focused on finding protein partners for two important membrane proteins: Cadherin 23 (cdh23) and prestin. Cdh23 is one of the tip-link proteins involved in transducer function, a key component of mechanoelectrical transduction and stereocilia-based amplification. Prestin is a basolateral membrane protein responsible for OHC somatic electromotility. Using the membrane-based yeast two-hybrid system to screen a newly built cDNA library made predominantly from OHCs, we identified two completely different groups of

INTRODUCTION: the aim of this study was to investigate cochlear functions in patients with hyperemesis gravidarum (HG). METHODES: twenty-nine HG patients (58 ears) and 31 healthy control subjects (62 ears) were included. Audiometry testings at 250 and 500 Hz and 1, 2, 4, 8, 10, 12, 14, 16 kHz were performed to the patients and controls. RESULTS: mean age of patients with HG was 26,5 4,4 years and the mean age of control group was 28,0 4,2 years. At the time of the tests mean gestational age of the HG group and controls were 9 and 11 weeks respectively. No differences were observed between the groups in tympanic membrane status, orother otolaringological evaluations. No significant differences were observed in audiometric tests at any frequencies between the groups (p values for all>0.05). CONCLUSION: there was not a difference between pregnant cases with HG and cases with normal pregnancy in terms of audimetric tests. Cochlear functions are not affectedremarkably in women with HG.

Mechanical responses in the basal turn of the guinea-pig cochlea are measured with low-level broad-band noise as the acoustical stimulus [for details see de Boer and Nuttall, J. Acoust. Soc. Am. 101, 3583-3592 (1997)]. Results are interpreted within the framework of a classical three-dimensional model of the cochlea that belongs to a very wide class of nonlinear models. The use of linear-systems analysis for this class of nonlinear models has been justified earlier [de Boer, Audit. Neurosci. 3, 377-388 (1997)]. The data are subjected to inverse analysis with the aim to recover the effective basilar-membrane impedance. This is a parameter function that, when inserted into the model, produces a model response, the resynthesized response, that is similar to the measured response. With present-day solution methods, resynthesis leads back to an almost perfect replica of the original response in the spatial domain. It is demonstrated in this paper that this also applies to the response in the frequency
