The workings of the inner ear have been long thought to be well documented and understood.

Hearing Loss Gene Discovered
2012-10-01 05:38:50

A team of researchers has reportedly discovered a new genetic mutation that leads to deafness and hearing loss associated with a relatively rare condition.

From tracking activities within bacteria to creating images of molecules that make up human hair, several experiments have already demonstrated the unique abilities of the revolutionary imaging technique called multi-isotope imaging mass spectometry, or MIMS, developed by researchers at Brigham and Women's Hospital (BWH).

Mutated genes in the sensory hair cells of the inner ear prevent sound waves from being converted into electrical signals- a fundamental first step in hearing. Restoring electrical signals in the sensory cells of deaf mice by introducing new genes allowed the mice to hear.
