Heterozygous missense mutations in the caveolin-3 gene (CAV3) cause different muscle disorders. Most patients with CAV3 alterations present with rippling muscle disease (RMD) characterized by signs of increased muscle irritability without muscle weakness.

This study determines how the magnitude and pattern of cochlear damage is altered when exposure to noise is interrupted by regularly spaced rest periods. Groups of chinchillas were exposed for six hours per session to an octave band of noise with a center frequency of 0.5 kHz. The rest interval between successive exposures varied from 18 to 162 hours.
