Two intrinsic dynamical instabilities of V(m) are present in hair cells. One of these is observed as spontaneous voltage fluctuations by currents through K(IR), K(V) and h-channels in combination with a steady current through MET channels. The other instability shows as regenerative voltage changes involving Ca2+ and K(V) channels. The BK(Ca) channels prevent the spontaneous voltage fluctuations from activating the regenerative system.
