Given his return to normal hearing, the most plausible explanation for this phenomenon is either perilymphatic fluid shifts or the poorly understood acoustic efferent systems acting on the contralateral cochlea.
Since the lesioning procedure did not ensure a precise and complete removal of the efferent system, a genetically altered mouse ([euro]9 Ach receptor subunit knockout) was developed in which the peripheral cochlear Ach receptor sites were deleted.
