MGH researchers find way of regenerating cells key to hearing

Selectively turning off a protein that controls the growth and division of cells could allow regeneration of the inner ear's hair cells, which convert sound vibrations into nerve impulses. The discovery by a research team based at Massachusetts General Hospital (MGH) runs counter to current beliefs about these cells and could eventually lead to ways of preventing or treating hearing loss. The r...
