The small but very complex inner ears are responsible for the senses of hearing and equilibrium. These videos demonstrate the fine structure of the inner ear cochlea and vestibular systems. Specific immunomarkers make the hair cells and neuronal elements, including the spiral and vestibular ganglion cells and their processes, visible in three dimension.
