This study presents evidence in support of the hypothesis that one of the sites of failure during noise-induced temporary threshold shift (TTS) is the afferent synapse between auditory hair cells and auditory nerve fibers. Our results show clear evidence indicating changes in the quantity of afferent synapses and the morphology of presynaptic structures in the alligator lizard auditory hair cells during TTS. In TTS hair cells there are statistically significant decreases in: 1) the number of… CONTINUE READING
