Our findings provide a theoretical basis for further studies on the physiological function of LaminB1 in the cochleae.
Caption: Figure 2: Low-frequency sound environment did not change the alignment and the growth of hair bundles in hair cells in the apical turn of the cochleae. (a) Three rows of OHCs and one row of IHCs (labeled with rhodamine-phalloidin (red)) were observed in both acoustic-stimulated and control groups at P14.
After functional hearing test, cochleae of Balb/C mice were quickly removed from the temporal bone, fixed in 4% paraformaldehyde in phosphate-buffered saline (PBS) at 4[degrees]C for 12 h, and washed with cold PBS 3 times.
Comparison of the two experimental conditions revealed higher average drug concentrations in perilymph of the nonexposed cochleae (6.20 [+ or -] 2.38; mean [+ or -] SD across all time points; n = 22) compared to noise-exposed cochleae (4.26 [+ or -] 3.80; n = 31; P = 0.03, unpaired [beta]-test).
In 2001, 30 artificial cochleae intended for war veterans' children were purchased by joint action of the Ministry of War Veterans and Ministry of Health, named Anamarija in the World of Sounds.
The compressed electrode is beneficial in ensuring complete insertion of the electrode in patients with shorter cochleae.
Four weeks after transplantation, the researchers found that the majority of cochleae that had been transplanted exhibited the settlement of iPS or ES-derived neurons.
To assess the magnitude of cochlear damage, we counted hair cells from cochleae harvested from the same animals used for physiological studies.
The research is aimed at analysing cochlea morphometry, deriving metrics to help quantitatively describe cochleae (where there are now predominantly qualitative descriptions), and constructing a mathematical model that can capture its essential characteristics.
One of the things we know about free radicals is that regardless of how they are formed, the type of injury they cause conforms to histologic findings seen in aminoglycoside-injured cochleae. (3-5)
Ganglion cell populations in normal and pathological human cochleae implications for cochlear implantation.
Acoustic environment significantly decreases the ABR threshold, increases prestin expression in outer HCs, and enhance maturation of ribbon synapses in the postnatal mouse cochleae. P.
(106) The neuroprotective effects of caroverine were confirmed in a study by Ehrenberger and Felix, who demonstrated that caroverine can depress the activity of glutamate receptors in the cochleae of guinea pigs.
Cochleae were quickly extracted and immersion fixed in 4% paraformaldehyde overnight at 4[degrees]C.
Our results are in line with other studies pointing out the expression of proin.ammatory cytokines in noise-damaged cochleae [6, 13].
