In this paper, we will describe how electronic speckle pattern interferometry — ESPI — has been used to study and measure the movements of biological objects like the human body both in vitro and in vivo. The main part will deal with work on the human hearing mechanism, in particular recent experiments on vibration analysis of the basilar membrane.
