5/20/17 1 Terminology: Scala vestibuli: vestibular canal (perilymph: rich in Na+) Scala tympani: tympanic canal (perilymph: rich in Na+) Scala media: cochlear duct (endolymph: rich in K+) 5/22/17 64 Basilar Membrane Forms part of the floor of the cochlear duct Anchors the sensory hair cells in the Organof Corti Organ of Corti: region that contains sensory hair cells that detect the sound vibrations transmitted to the inner ear. Vibrates in response to the vibrations transmittedthrough the inner ear >15,000 hair cells locatedalong the basilar membrane Synapse to afferent neurons Afferent neurons=auditory nerve à auditory center in the temporal lobe of the brain 5/22/17 65

Of inner hair cells (responsible for hearing) and outer hair cells (regulate tension on basilar membrane) Hair bundle : stereocilia of one inner hair cell Tip link ( gating spring ) attaches tip of each stereocilium in a hair bundle to the side of the next longer stereocilium.
