Gentamicin administration on the stapes footplate causes greater hearing loss and vestibulotoxicity than round window administration in guinea pigs
Clinically, gentamicin has been used extensively to treat the debilitating symptoms of Meniere's disease and is well known for its vestibulotoxic properties. Until recently, it was widely accepted that the round window ...
Promoting neurite outgrowth from spiral ganglion neuron explants using polypyrrole
(Wiley Periodicals Inc, 2009)
Fast inhibition alters first spike timing in auditory brainstem neurons
(The American Physiological Society, 2004)
Research directions for future generations of cochlear implants
(Whurr Publishers Ltd, 2004)
Physiological and psychophysical research indicates that improved hearing in noise and music appreciation are likely with cochlear implants, with better reproduction of the fine temporospatial patterns of neural response ...

Electrode materials that facilitate interaction with living cells are crucial for the development of next-generation bionic devices.
Effects of age and sleeping position on arousal from sleep in preterm infants
(AMER ACAD SLEEP MEDICINE, 2002-11-12)
STUDY OBJECTIVES: Preterm infants are at increased risk of sudden infant death syndrome (SIDS). We investigated whether the prone sleeping position impaired arousal from sleep in healthy preterm infants and whether this ...
Deriving accurate microbiota profiles from human samples with low bacterial content through post-sequencing processing of Illumina MiSeq data
(BIOMED CENTRAL LTD, 2015-05-05)
BACKGROUND: The rapid expansion of 16S rRNA gene sequencing in challenging clinical contexts has resulted in a growing body of literature of variable quality. To a large extent, this is due to a failure to address spurious ...
Influence of Cochleostomy and Cochlear Implant Insertion on Drug Gradients following Intratympanic Application in Guinea Pigs
Locally applied drugs can protect residual hearing following cochlear implantation. The influence of cochlear implantation on drug levels in the scala tympani (ST) after round window application was investigated in guinea ...
Relations between cochlear histopathology and hearing loss in experimental cochlear implantation
(ELSEVIER SCIENCE BV, 2013-04-01)
This study reviews the cochlear histology from four hearing preservation cochlear implantation experiments conducted on 73 guinea pigs from our institution, and relates histopathological findings to residual hearing. All ...
