Supplementary Material

Video 1: Intravital multi-photon recording of the guinea pig cochlear microvasculature. A radiating arteriole (right) is feeding into capillaries of the stria vascularis (left) in the cochlear lateral wall. A sequence of 22 seconds is shown. Scale bar is 40 μm. Gamma value was set to 2, to allow simultaneous visualization of darker and brighter areas.
