The cochlear place-frequency map, determined from noise-damaged mice, is shifted to lower frequencies by up to one octave compared with the map determined from normal hearing mice. To test the hypothesis that the shift results from damage to the cochlear amplifier, we measured frequency tuning curves from the same neurons before and after noise exposure. Noise damage resulted in loss of tuning and elevation of thresholds. The neuronal characteristic frequency shifted by 0.6-1.2 octaves… CONTINUE READING
