    Stiffness and tension gradients of the hair cell’s tip-link complex in the mammalian cochlea

    Mélanie Tobin et al.
    The tip-link complex of the hair cell is mechanically tuned along the tonotopic axis of the cochlea.

    Timing of the reticular lamina and basilar membrane vibration in living gerbil cochleae

    Wenxuan He et al.
    Heterodyne low-coherence interferometry demonstrates that the latency of the sound-induced reticular lamina vibration is significantly greater than that of the basilar membrane vibration in living gerbil cochleae.

    A counter gradient of Activin A and follistatin instructs the timing of hair cell differentiation in the murine cochlea

    Meenakshi Prajapati-DiNubila et al.
    Opposing gradients of activin A and follistatin within the spiral shaped mammalian cochlea instruct the graded pattern of mechano-sensory hair cell formation.

    Cochlear progenitor number is controlled through mesenchymal FGF receptor signaling

    Sung-Ho Huh et al.
    Otic epithelial Fibroblast Growth Factors control the number of cochlear sensory progenitor cells through an FGF responsive periotic mesenchyme.

    Across-species differences in pitch perception are consistent with differences in cochlear filtering

    Kerry MM Walker et al.
    Humans and other animals have different strategies for extracting the pitch of sounds, potentially driven by the species-specific frequency selectivity of the ear.

    The murine catecholamine methyltransferase mTOMT is essential for mechanotransduction by cochlear hair cells

    Christopher L Cunningham et al.
    Murine TOMT is essential for transport of mechanotransduction components to stereocilia in cochlear hair cells.

    Transcriptomic and epigenetic regulation of hair cell regeneration in the mouse utricle and its potentiation by Atoh1

    Hsin-I Jen et al.
    The mammalian utricle can better regenerate hair cells compared to the cochlea because it maintains hair cell gene loci in a more transcriptionally accessible state.

    Neuropilin-2/Semaphorin-3F-mediated repulsion promotes inner hair cell innervation by spiral ganglion neurons

    Thomas M Coate et al.
    The development of the mammalian cochlea undergoes a period of embryonic refinement in which the outer hair cell region repels incoming type I spiral ganglion neurons, thus ensuring these neurons instead form connections with inner hair cells.

    Fine-tuning of Notch signaling sets the boundary of the organ of Corti and establishes sensory cell fates

    Martin L Basch et al.
    The cochlea deploys two Fringe proteins at exactly the same time and position to regulate a novel mode of Notch signaling that sets the boundary of the organ of Corti, the ear's hearing organ.
