Hair cell of inner ear: A scanning electron microscope image of the sensory hair bundle from a guinea pig's hearing organ in the inner ear. When vibrations in the liquid in the inner ear causes these to move, nerve signals are sent to the brain, and are interpreted as sound.
Meniere's Disease / A woman w/menieres -- and lots of other issues, opinions, politics, life, love, etc... Not really a great Menieres site.
Cochlea from Inner Ear. Color-enhanced scanning electron micrograph of the inside of a guinea pig inner ear showing the hearing organ, or cochlea. Running along the spiral structure are rows of sensory cells which respond to different frequencies of sound. The whole organ is just a few millimeters long.
"Salovum & SPC-Flakes: How Antisecretory Factor (AF) Can Decrease Meniere’s Disease Vertigo" -- I have started hearing about spc-flakes in particular and began researching; this post from "Menieres: An Inner (Ear) Journey" collates and summarizes a lot of it and adds information about Salovum, as well.
Middle ear bone. Coloured scanning electron micrograph (SEM) of the human middle ear, showing the stapes (ring-shaped). The stapes is one of three bones (known as the ossicles) in the middle ear that conduct sound waves from the outer ear to the inner ear. How intricate!
Meniere’s disease is a condition in which there is an excess of fluid in the inner ear.
