August 2007, Auburn, MA & Charlottesville, VA--Andrea Lelli, Eric A. Stauffer and Jeffrey R. Holt, Department of Neuroscience, University of Virginia Medical School have won the $25,000 PI (Physik Instrumente) NanoInnovation Grant™ for a research proposal entitled "A Fast Mechanical Nanostimulator to Study Sensory Transduction and Amplification in the Inner Ear".
Hair Cells & Mechanotransduction
Hair cells are mechano transducers located in the sensory portion of the inner ear. They transform high frequency nanometric mechanical displacements into electrical signals that are transmitted to the brain. Many aspects of hair cell function remain unknown because biophysical studies of hair cell mechanotransduction have been limited by unreliable and slow methods for stimulus delivery.
