Changes in structure and function of the auditory system can be produced by experimentally manipulating the sensory environment, and especially dramatic effects result from deprivation procedures. An alternative deprivation strategy utilizes naturally occurring lesions. The congenitally deaf white cat represents an animal model of sensory deprivation because it mimics a form of human deafness called the Scheibe deformity and permits studies of how central neurons react to early-onset cochlear… CONTINUE READING
