This study has shown that 1) the ratio of excitatory and inhibitory inputs to units in the central nucleus of the inferior colliculus is altered when one cochlea is neomycin-deafened and/or electrically stimulated; 2) prestimulus threshold shift and lateral inhibition mechanisms can be used to explain these results; and 3) at high current levels a leakage current into the modiolus can evoke unit population responses.
