Auditory pathway electrophysiological studies were performed on the mutant quail 'Quv'. This mutation is known to result in neurofilament deficiencies of both the peripheral and central nervous systems. Auditory evoked brainstem responses (ABRs), electrocochleograms (EcochGs) and middle latency responses (MLRs) were evaluated. ABRs in Quv quails demonstrated markedly altered waveforms exhibiting longer latencies, absence of the later peaks and lower amplitudes. The EcochG showed normal cochlear… CONTINUE READING
