Effect of outer hair cell piezoelectricity on high-frequency receptor potentials
Journal of the Acoustical Society of America
The low-pass voltage response of outer hair cells predicted by conventional equivalent circuit analysis would preclude the active force production at high frequencies. We have found that the band pass characteristics can be improved by introducing the piezoelectric properties of the cell wall. In contrast to the conventional analysis, the receptor potential does not tend to zero and at any frequency is greater than a limiting value. In addition, the phase shift between the transduction currentdoi:10.1121/1.1526493 pmid:12558282 fatcat:eo6d6f33vfgkrntspbrclje3xe
