Figure 3 : Human otoconia after exposure to ethanol.

(A) Human otoconia before exposure to ethanol. (B-C) Structural changes after 1, 3, 5, 7, 47 hours following exposure are not obvious. The organic component remains unaffected. The lower brilliance of the images compared with Figures 2 is due to the lack of fixation of the organic part of the composite. ESEM, low vacuum (LV), 15 kV. Scale bar in A (2 μm) corresponds to B-F.
