The acoustic function of the inner ear

, : The acoustic function of the inner ear. Acta Oto Laryngol [Stockholm] 37(1): 37-44

The sound perception in the inner ear is mediated by relay devices which in structure and manner of acting resemble loudspeakers, electrodynamic and capacitive, in radio and sound film technic of today. The electric power for the "microphones" in the ear is obtained from a streaming potential arising in the vas spirale of the art. auditiva interna. An investigation of difference and summation sound, when two tones strike the ear, shows combination oscillations analogous to those occurring due to interference, addition of two electric oscillations (the "side-bands"), well-known in wireless technic.

In a trial with cuttings prepared from one-year-old shoots of N. indicum, semi-hardwood cuttings rooted best, with 72% rooting, compared with only 26 and 12%, respectively, for softwood and hardwood cuttings.

This electron-microscopic-autoradiographic study was undertaken to identify the cell organelles, which bind plutonium in Chinese hamster hepatocytes at different times after injection. Female Chinese hamsters were injected intraperitoneally with 2...
