Human and animal studies have shown that toluene can cause hearing loss. In the rat, the outer hair cells are first disrupted by the ototoxicant. Because of their particular sensitivity to toluene, the cochlear microphonic potential (CMP) was used for monitoring the cochlea activity of anesthetized rats exposed to both noise (band noise centered at 4 kHz) and toluene. In the present experiment, the conditions were specifically designed to study the toluene effects on CMP and not those of its… CONTINUE READING
