A reliable animal model of acute type of endolymphatic hydrops was made with injection of artificial endolymph into the cochlear duct. In 12 animals without Reissner's membrane rupture, the endolymphatic potentials (EP) were kept normal after injection of artificial endolymph, but their electrocochleography (ECoG) showed as: a rise of summating potentials(More)
The development of middle-ear structures in the mouse was examined in nine groups of pups between 1 and 45 days of age. The area of the tympanic membrane (pars tensa and pars flaccida), the length of the lever arms of the malleus and incus, the surface area of the oval window, and the volume of the bulla all showed systematic changes during neonatal life.(More)
Three case studies are presented to illustrate the clinical usefulness of serial electrophysiologic and behavioral audiologic assessments in describing CNS function in severe head injury. There was an association among acute auditory brain stem and middle-latency evoked response findings, computed tomography of brain abnormality and neurologic status, and(More)
The scala vestibuli or the scala tympani of guinea pigs was perfused with artificial perilymph containing 1, 5, 10, 20, 30, 40 and 50 mM of potassium chloride in a total concentration of 150 mM with the background composed of sodium chloride. With the perfusion of the scala vestibuli, each concentration failed to alter the magnitude of the negative(More)
The dynamics of perilymph flow in the cochlea was studied in guinea pigs. After placement of sodium chloride crystals on the round window membrane, the potassium ion concentration in the scala vestibuli in the basal turn does not change. The potassium ion concentrations in the scala tympani in the basal turn increases rapidly, while the potassium ion(More)
