An attempt to determine the significance of certain histopathological changes within the various structures of the cochlea and the cochlear nerve has resulted in the use of different experimental agents. A cytological study of the effects of drugs on the cochlea (Covell)' has shown the external hair cells, the external sulcus cells and also those of the stria vascularis to be susceptible to the action of such drugs-as quinine and sodium salicylate. The present study is a continuation of the… Expand

Figures and Topics from this paper

V The Peripheral Endings of the Cochlear Nerve
TLDR
De Nh4 has summarized the results of the previous studies and described the appearance of these endings under normal conditions for human and animal material with the use of different silver impregnation methods. Expand
EFFECTS OF DRUGS ON THE STRIA VASCULARIS
TLDR
Histologic changes in the peripheral auditory mechanism, as well as lesions which might be apparent in the central auditory pathways, when correlated with the results of hearing tests on animals should finally aid in a better understanding of the action of such drugs as quinine. Expand
XXVIII Histopathology of the Peripheral Auditory Mechanism in Drug-Injected Animals
TLDR
The drugs selected for study were those the use of which had been known to result in deafness and instances of their effects have appeared in the literature, and it is obvious that the nature of these agents is varied. Expand
LII Eighth Nerve High Tone Deafness from a Nutritional Standpoint
TLDR
It is possible to learn much by feeding animals special diets, testing the transmission of sound, and making serial sections of the middle and inner ear of these animals for histological studies, says one of the most distinguished members of the American Otological Society. Expand
Aminoglycoside-induced cochlear pathology in man.
TLDR
Temporal bones from five patients with hearing loss as a result of aminoglycoside treatment were examined by the method of microdissection and surface preparations, followed by celloidin embedding and serial sectioning of the modiolus, highlighting the special hazard for the inner ear that is associated with the clinical use of neomycin. Expand
Chronic progressive deafness, including otosclerosis and diseases of the inner ear.
TLDR
The literature for 1937 is unusual for the large number of contributions on nerve deafness, and there are important reports on the results of Gray's intratympanic treatment of otosclerosis with thyroxin as well as several articles on the surgical treatment. Expand
IX Otological Research and its Recent Contributions to Clinical Otology
TLDR
The purpose of this discussion is to provide a critical summary of a ten years' period in otological research, when adequate means for research in the physiology of hearing or its pathologic physiology were available. Expand
Plight of the nerve-deaf patient; the uselessness of all present therapy; the practical usefulness of aural rehabilitation.
TLDR
This thesis is the outcome of one otologist's personal experiences with the deafened and hard of hearing in a prewar private practice of six and a half years, a war experience of three and ahalf years, and a short postwar experience in private practice, continuing to date. Expand
L A Survey of the Relation between Nutrition and the Ear
The etiology of many diseases which was a few years ago either unknown or thought to be due to infections may now be related to nutritional deficiencies. This is true of beriberi, pellagra, Landry'sExpand

A CYTOLOGIC STUDY OF THE EFFECTS OF DRUGS ON THE COCHLEA
TLDR
The electrical method for testing hearing in animals now makes it possible to correlate the two phases of the work, and a subsequent paper will deal with the electrical response of the cochlea in relation to the cytologic observations reported here. Expand
Marchi's Staining Method: Studies of Some of the Underlying Mechanisms Involved
Spinal cord of cat and rabbit was stained, after experimental lesions, by variations of Marchi's method. The following conclusions were drawn:1. The presence of an oxidizing agent (K2Cr2O7, NaIO3, orExpand
THE PATHOLOGIC CHANGES RESULTING FROM VITAMIN DEFICIENCY
TLDR
It is assumed that some of the general disturbances in nutrition, blood formation and growth, common to several of the vitamin deficiencies, are in all probability secondary nonspecific effects. Expand
