Cannabinoids and their receptors are increasingly being studied because of their high potential for clinical use. As a hyperspecialized portion of the peripheral nervous system, study of the expression and function of cannabinoid… (More)
Fig 1. Hearing thresholds before and after intraperitoneal administration of 10 mg/kg dose of CDDP or PBS.CDDP-induced hearing loss was statistically significant for all frequencies with respect to pre-treatment hearing. The diagrams include the mean, the standard deviation (n = 33), and the ANOVA results (difference statistically significant respect tectorial membrane *p<0.05).
