Inhibitory inputs to the binaural brainstem nuclei medial and lateral superior olives (MSO and LSO, respectively) are thought to be important for sound localization in mammals. Here, we investigate whether aged gerbils that typically exhibit degenerative changes in auditory nuclei providing inhibition to MSO and LSO show diminished localization ability. We also tested the localization ability in gerbils reared in omni-directional white noise during hearing onset, a treatment that affects the… CONTINUE READING
