Motion Simulation of Inner Hair Cell Stereocilia
Found in: Computing in Science & Engineering
By Lin Yang,Tian-Yu Zhang,Jim X. Chen,Pei-Dong Dai,Wei Quan,Ke-Qiang Wang,Zheng-Min Wang
Issue Date:March 2013
pp. 27-33
To investigate the interaction between stereocilia and the links of inner hair cells during the motion of the organ of Corti and local stress distribution, two 3D finite-element models were built. Static and dynamic simulation results showed that the top o...
A Contour Map of the Ear's Vestibular Apparatus Based on 3D Reconstruction
Found in: Computing in Science and Engineering
By Tian-Yu Zhang, Pei-Dong Dai, Zheng-Min Wang, Ke-Qiang Wang, Jim X. Chen, Le Xie
Issue Date:January 2007
pp. 26-31
This article presents a method for developing anatomic contour maps that quantitatively display the vestibular apparatus's 3D spatial configurations. Contour maps are useful tools for determining the appropriate position of the drill and the safe depth and...
A Virtual Laboratory for Temporal Bone Microanatomy
Found in: Computing in Science and Engineering
By Pei-Dong Dai, Tian-Yu Zhang, Zheng-Min Wang, Jim X. Chen, Ke-Qiang Wang
Issue Date:March 2005
pp. 75-79
Learning temporal bone microanatomy is one of an otolaryngology (ear, nose, and throat) resident's most important and problematic tasks. The authors present a new method for generating and reconstructing 3D temporal bone models and their applications in st...
A Virtual Platform for Auditory Organ Mechanics Analysis
Found in: Computing in Science and Engineering
By You-Zhou Xie, Lin Yang, Li-Fen Chen, Pei-Dong Dai, Tian-Yu Zhang, Jim X. Chen, Zheng-Min Wang
Issue Date:July 2009
pp. 74-80
To better understand the relationship between the sound conduction system's structure and function, the authors developed a virtual platform that integrates 3D reconstruction and finite element modeling of the peripheral auditory organ to simulate biomecha...
