With place coding, as illustrated in Figure 4, sound frequencies are filtered by the basilar membrane, with the maximal displacement for the high frequencies in the basal turn moving to the apical turn for low frequencies.
Cochlear disease and anatomical variations made the precise placement of the electrode difficult under the basilar membrane for the required localized stimulation.
Now, Holmes and his colleagues are developing mathematical equations that describe how the ear canal leading to the eardrum influences sound waves and how specialized hair cells embedded in the basilar membrane convert mechanical movement into electrical signals.
For example the array of resonators has better resolution in a frequency range but the membrane has any behaviour closer to the real basilar membrane (for example similar running of travelling waves and phase characteristics).
This damage ranges from relatively minor displacement of the basilar membrane to severe fracture of the osseous spiral lamina, tearing of the basilar membrane or spiral ligament, and deviation of the electrode path from its intended location in the ST to the overlying scala media and/or scala vestibuli.
I pointed out that on the basilar membrane, the ciliform cells of Corti are much more densely packed in the part reserved for the perception of high frequencies than in the one where the low frequencies are distributed; so that the transmission of energy that is caught up towards the cortex is much more intense when it comes from the zone of the high frequencies than when it comes from the part reserved for the low frequencies.
In term of signal decomposition the most important part of the ear is cochlea where basilar membrane with a sense cells is located.
6] However, Robertson was able to demonstrate changes in the tuning curves of single spiral ganglion cells in the guinea pig basilar membrane after removal of perilymph.
nonpolymerized actin, alpha-active myosin, fibrin, and tubulin), these cells have the capacity to move the tectorial and basilar membranes to a frequency of 30 kHz.
