A great learning tool online is Promenade ‘Round the Cochlea, which is in both French and English. I’ve just been swamped during the conference, but my presentation went great yesterday and I got lots of feedback to keep me busy with experiments forever and ever Ramen. Anyway, check out the app, as it does a great job of explaining some aspects of inner ear biology with pictures. Also, Happy Valentines!

    forever and ever Ramen.

    Jeez, honey — if I’d have known, I could have taken you to a noodle restaurant.

    Great post of a valuable learning tool!

    I noticed at ‘other sites’ a reference to
    Hearing and Balance: textbook University of Wisconsin
    http://www.neurophys.wisc.edu/h&b/textbook/chap-6.html

    A mouse click goes to VI. THE INNER EAR: THE COCHLEA.
    Clicking [next] at the bottom of this page goes to VII. THE INNER EAR: THE VESTIBULAR APPARATUS.

    I still suspect something important about this intimate relationship between hearing and balance / orientation.
