Many studies have reported plastic changes in central auditory frequency organization after chronic cochlear lesions. These studies employed mechanical, acoustic or drug-induced disruptions of restricted regions of the organ of Corti that permanently alter its tuning and sensitivity and require an extended recovery period before central effects can be measured. In this study, mechanical lesions were made to 1 mm sectors of the spiral ganglion (SG). These lesions remove a restricted portion of… CONTINUE READING
