Brief description Normal hearing relies on the generation and transmission of electrical signals in the hearing organ, the inner ear. These electrical signals are generated by the action of specialized molecular ion channels in the cellular membranes of the inner ear and this research aims to charcterize these ion channels and detail their role in the hearing process. The results will impact on our understanding of human hearing disorders such as tinnitus, auditory neuropathy and disturbances of loudness sensation.
