Proteins Hey1 and Hey2 Ensure That Inner Ear 'Hair Cells' Are Made at the Right Time, in the Right Place
Neuroscientists have discovered the “molecular brakes” that time the generation of important cells in the inner ear cochleas of mice. These “hair cells” translate sound waves into electrical signals and are interpreted as sounds.
