Noise and the young mouse: genotype modifies the sensitive period for effects on cochlear physiology and audiogenic seizures.

Abstract

A sharply defined "critical period" has been described for the young C57BL/6 mouse, during which acoustic trauma will profoundly alter subsequent auditory behavior (audiogenic seizures, acoustic startle reflex). In several genotypes and species, a broader "sensitive period" exists, during which acoustic trauma is most damaging to cochlear functions in the… (More)
