I have been asked about histology of the cochlear of the ear by a student
who wants to study the hair cells. my advice to him has been that he will
most probably have to do it at the ultrastructural level using TEM. i do't
think that light microscopy will help much. Has anyone any experience with
this sort of thing?. I have no none. I think the specimen would need
probably need decalcification. What would decal. do to the ultrastructure of
the hair cells???
