Looking into the beauty of hearing
Nature's technology to hear is beautiful, ingenious and fascinating
The sensory cells in the ear are amazing creatures capable of detecting sound-evoked motions smaller than a billionth of a meter.
I am a researcher working to understand how this is possible, and trying to find ways of combating hearing loss.
As a medical student, I started a research project in the lab of Åke Flock and Mats Ulfendahl at Karolinska Institutet. When seeing the organ of Corti through an operating microscope, I was struck by the beauty of the almost perfect spiral of glittering Hensen cells and sensory cells, and wanted to know more about their function. The inner ear continues to fascinate me and I still want to know how it works.
