Growth of the inner ear in organ culture

T. Van De Water, R. J. Ruben

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


An organ culture system is presented for the mammalian inner ear. The development of the inner ear is recorded with time lapse cinematography and conventional histological techniques. The system allows for morphological development of differentiation of the neurosensory structures of the inner ear. The use of the organ culture system as a research tool for the understanding of normal and abnormal development of the inner ear is discussed.
