Comments P.186 left column 2nd paragraph: "It is usually assumed that OHC (outer hair cell) cytoplasmic viscosity is about the same as that of the cytoplasm of many other cells (typically 5–6 times greater than that of water), but it could be imagined that this quantity depends critically on the internal calcium concentration."
