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.

 

Recent animal work has suggested that cochlear synapses are more vulnerable than hair cells in both noise-induced and age-related hearing loss. This synaptopathy is invisible in conventional histopathological analysis, because cochlear nerve cell bodies in the spiral ganglion survive ...

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 ...
