Acoustic experience plays an important role in the development of the auditory system. Neonatal sound deprivation will result in significant reduction of both the cell soma area and total volume of the ventral cochlear nuclei (VCN) in adult animals (Webster, 1988). The present study has been undertaken to investigate this phenomenon by examining the effects of electrical stimulation of the auditory nerve of the kitten, on the morphology of the cochlear nucleus in animals deprived of sound following the administration of ototoxic drugs.
