Reduced sensory stimulation alters the molecular make-up of glutamatergic hair cell synapses in the developing cochlea.


Neural activity during early development is known to alter innervation pathways in the central and peripheral nervous systems. We sought to examine how reduced sound-induced sensory activity in the cochlea affected the consolidation of glutamatergic synapses between inner hair cells (IHC) and the primary auditory neurons as these synapses play a primary… (More)
