Nuclear factor kappaB deficiency is associated with auditory nerve degeneration and increased noise-induced hearing loss.


Degeneration of the spiral ganglion neurons (SGNs) of the auditory nerve occurs with age and in response to acoustic injury. Histopathological observations suggest that the neural degeneration often begins with an excitotoxic process affecting the afferent dendrites under the inner hair cells (IHCs), however, little is known about the sequence of cellular… (More)
