Microprobe analysis was performed at the cellular and subcellular levels of type I and type II vestibular hair cells. In principle the same types of elemental histograms were found in the two types of hair cells studied. High concentrations of Cl and K were detected in stereocilia, whereas calcium was found when analyzing stereocilia and the supranuclear cytoplasm.
