The 2-deoxy-D-glucose (2-DG) autoradiographic technique was adapted for application to the inner ear. The uptake of [14C]-DG during silence was compared with that observed during exposure to wide band noise (WBN) or pure tones at an intensity level of 85 db SPL. In silence, the highest levels of 2-DG uptake were observed in the spiral ligament, spiral prominence and stria vascularis, with approximately equal levels of uptake in each structure. The high levels of 2-DG uptake observed in the… CONTINUE READING
