Cochlear implantation in congenitally deaf children leads to electrical stimulation of an entirely naive central auditory system. In this case, processes of central auditory maturation are induced by the electric stimuli. For the study of these processes the deaf white cat (DWC) appears to be an appropriate model. However, a knowledge of the basic data of these animals is necessary before such a model may be used. This paper presents these data and is one of a series of publications concerning… CONTINUE READING
