When we disturbed the auditory input of the adult rat by cochleotomy or noise trauma on one side, several substantial anatomical, cellular, and molecular changes took place in the auditory brainstem. We found that: (1) cochleotomy or severe noise trauma both lead to a considerable increase of immunoreactivity of the growth-associated protein GAP-43 in the ventral cochlear nucleus (VCN) of the affected side; (2) the expression of GAP-43 in VCN is restricted to presynaptic endings and short fiber… CONTINUE READING
