Retrospectacle: A Neuroscience Blog

Bob Abu sent me this really amazing website on inner ear biology and morphology. Its got some really impressive SEM pictures and very informative descriptions of the anatomy of the cochlea. I’d suggest checking it out.

Cross-section of the sensory portion of the cochlea (the organ of Corti.)

    Indeed this is an awesome site.

    The links section has some excellent national and international connections, although the first and last site were not found at the time I searched.

    Northwestern is a link, why not UM?

    SB: Good question! Maybe they linked only their collaboraters? The group is in Itlay…..
