About this work

Description

Deiter's cells (front) provide structural support to the organ of Corti in the form of cross bracing. The outer hair cells (centre/back) connect into the back of the concave Deiter's cells (bottom/front) while the rigid, pillar-like support parts of the Deiter's cell (purple) connect to the top of the adjoining hair cell. The rigidity comes from bundles of microfilaments within the pillar.
