Tuning characteristics of the vibration hotspot and adjacent structures. a Amplitude- and b phase-transfer functions evaluated at three locations in the living organ of Corti: filled triangles, near the junction between the arcuate and pectinate zones of the BM; open triangles, in the Deiters’ cell (dc) bodies near the center of the vibration hotspot, ~40 µm away from the BM; and circles, in the Hensen’s/tectal cell (tc) region ~50 µm lateral to the Deiters’ cells. Gain and phase are referenced to the stapes vibrations evoked by identical multi-tone stimuli. Preparation RG17805, CF 25 kHz (see Fig. 6). Stimulus level 50 dB SPL
