 Falsification of the ionic channel theory of hair cell transduction

Michelangelo Rossetto


The hair cell provides the transduction of mechanical vibrations in the balance and acoustic sense of all vertebrates that swim, walk, or fly. The current theory places hair cell transduction in a mechanically controlled ion channel. Although the theory of a mechanical input modulating the flow of ions through an ion pore has been a useful tool, it is falsified by experimental data in the literature and can be definitively falsified by a proposed experiment.

Journal Description

CIB is an Open Access & Online only journal
Communicative & Integrative Biology serves as a platform for the synthesis of the biological sciences. The main focus centers around organismal communication, however, Communicative & Integrative Biology deals with communication at all levels of biological organization from subcellular organelles to societies, ecosystems and the biosphere as a whole. In particular, "Sensory Ecology" represents a new rapidly emerging field which combines animal and plant communication and signaling (biosemiotics) with cognition, evolution, ecology and behavioral ecology, as well as biophysics and neuroethology.
