Abstract : Under the contract there has been made an extensive study on the normal and pathologically altered inner ear of animals and man. The normal inner ear has been studied by light, electron and scanning electron microscopy and new techniques have been developed for these studies. The same techniques have also been used for the pathological ears. Damage to the inner ear has been produced by noise and ototoxic agents. In man autopsy material has been used but a special technique has been developed to get optimal fixation. (Author)
