Second-order auditory neurons in nucleus magnocellularis (NM) of the chick brainstem undergo a series of rapid metabolic changes following unilateral cochlea removal, culminating in the death of 25% of NM neurons. Within hours of cochlea removal, ipsilateral NM neurons show marked increases in histochemical staining for the mitochondrial enzymes succinate(More)
Changes in cytochrome oxidase (CO) activity were studied in the chick brainstem auditory nuclei, n. magnocellularis (NM) and n. laminaris (NL), following unilateral cochlea removal. Chickens aged 10 days or 56 weeks underwent unilateral cochlea removal. Following survival periods of 30 minutes to 14 days for the 10-day-old birds and 6 hours or 14 days for(More)

The role of mitochondrial biogenesis in hair cell survival after injury was evaluated by inhibiting mitochondrial protein synthesis with chloramphenicol and then studying the effects on hair cell survival after exposure to two different types of ototoxins, gentamicin and acoustic trauma. Seven- to 10-day-old chicks were treated with either a single(More)
Across a series of four experiments with 3- to 4-year-olds we demonstrate how cognitive mechanisms supporting noun learning extend to the mapping of actions to objects. In Experiment 1 (n = 61) the demonstration of a novel action led children to select a novel, rather than a familiar object. In Experiment 2 (n = 78) children exhibited long-term retention of(More)
