Cochlear neuropathy in human presbycusis: Confocal analysis of hidden hearing loss in post-mortem tissue.
 

Author(s): Lucas M Viana, Jennifer T O'Malley, Barbara J Burgess, Dianne D Jones, Carlos A C P Oliveira, Felipe Santos, Saumil N Merchant, Leslie D Liberman, M Charles Liberman

Journal: Hear. Res.. 2015 Sep;327():78-88.

Mechanisms and genes in human strial presbycusis from animal models.
 

Author(s): Kevin K Ohlemiller

Journal: Brain Res.. 2009 Jun;1277():70-83.

 

Schuknecht proposed a discrete form of presbycusis in which hearing loss results principally from degeneration of cochlear stria vascularis and decline of the endocochlear potential (EP). This form was asserted to be genetically linked, and to arise independently from age-related ...
