Adult male rats with induced microgyric lesions exhibit significant deficits in rapid auditory processing, as well as morphological alterations in the medial geniculate nucleus (MGN) of the thalamus. These findings are considered striking in light of similar anatomical and auditory processing anomalies in language disabled humans. Given evidence from clinical and animal studies that acoustic experience may alter sensory processing at behavioral and neurophysiological levels, the current study… CONTINUE READING
