A fine thermocouple, placed on the round window of the guinea pig cochlea, was used to measure temperature and electrical potentials. In acute experiments, rectal temperature was held constant at 38 degrees C while cochlear temperature was varied between 38 degrees C and 31.5 degrees C. Cochlear cooling to 36 degrees C caused elevated thresholds for the compound action potential (CAP) in response to tone bursts with frequencies above 24 kHz. CAP latencies increased for all frequencies tested (2… CONTINUE READING
