Preliminary results presented here indicate a simultaneous decrease in endocochlear potential (EP) and in endolymphatic potassium ion concentration (K+e) under noise exposure. Maximum changes were observed after 20 min and 30 min of sound stimulation, respectively for EP and Ke+. EP recovery was faster than that of K+e. Noise-induced K+e alterations varied with the pure-tone frequency, and the locus along the basilar membrane where the measurements were performed. This supports the hypothesis… CONTINUE READING
