OBJECTIVE The aim of the study is to investigate the survival of neural stem cells (NSCs) in normal rat cochlea and their potential effect on auditory function and cochlea structures via round window transplantation. METHODS In comparison with the normal rats without any transplantation (group III), normal rat cochleae were transplanted with NSCs infected with adenovirus carrying green fluorescence protein (GFP) gene (group I) or the artificial perilymph (group II) via round windows.
