Aims:
Apply scanning and transmission electron microscopy and microstructural-crystallographic techniques to evaluate the possible mechanisms of otoconia restructuring in response to gravity loading and answer the following questions:

 

1) Are there structural changes in otoconia as a result of experimental altered gravity conditions?
2) If so, is the change due to a constructive or
destructive process?
3) And, is the process dependent on length of exposure to altered gravity loading
?
