The poor regenerative capacity of the spiral ganglion neurons of the mammalian inner ear has initiated research on how to assist the functional recovery of the injured auditory system. A possible treatment is to use a biological implant with a potential to establish central or peripheral synaptic contacts to develop into a functional auditory unit. The feasibility of this approach was tested by xenograft implantation of dorsal root ganglion (DRG) neurons from embryonic days 13 to 14, mouse… CONTINUE READING
