Calcium Channel Regulates Bone Homeostasis In Middle And Inner Ear

The middle ear contains the three auditory ossicles the malleus, incus, and stapes which sequentially conduct sound by transmitting sound vibrations from the tympanic membrane to the fluid in the cochlea via the oval window of the otic capsule, the bony case enclosing the cochlea and vestibular system. In the otic capsule, the vibrations are…
