BACKGROUND Unlike mammals, teleost fishes are capable of regenerating sensory inner ear hair cells that have been lost following acoustic or ototoxic trauma. Previous work indicated that immediately following sound exposure, zebrafish saccules exhibit significant hair cell loss that recovers to pre-treatment levels within 14 days. Following acoustic trauma(More)
Background Fishes are capable of regenerating sensory hair cells in the inner ear after acoustic trauma [1]. We recently established the time course for auditory hair cell regeneration in zebrafish. Immediately following acoustic overexpo-sure, zebrafish saccules exhibited significant hair cell loss, but recovered to pretreatment levels at 14 days(More)
