It is now well recognized that normal afferent innervation is necessary for the development. This study investigated the effect of chronic electrical stimulation of the auditory nerve on the maturation of cochlear nucleus soma area of the neonatally deafened kittens. Eight kittens were deafened using kanamycin and ethacrynic acid, received a stimulated intracochlear implant in the left side and a dummy implant in right side, and classified two groups - the stimulated and the control group.
