Stanford-developed probe aids study of hearing

Stanford engineers and medical researchers have developed a tiny tool known as a force probe to study sensory cells in the ear, as Anthony Peng, PhD, a postdoctoral research fellow in otolaryngology, and Anthony Ricci, PhD, professor of otolaryngology, discuss in this brief video. A Stanford News article provides more details on this Bio-X project and how, in contributing to scientists' understanding of how we interpret sound, the findings could inform new ways of treating some forms of hearing loss.

The scenario many of us learned in school is that two X chromosomes make someone female, and an X and a Y chromosome make someone male. These are simplistic ways of thinking about what is scientifically very complex.
