Modification of auditory evoked startle responding using prepulse inhibition was used to examine the effects of trichloroethylene (TCE) exposure on auditory thresholds. Rats were exposed by inhalation to 0, 1500, or 3000 ppm TCE for 18 hours per day, 5 days a week for 3 weeks. Auditory thresholds for 5 and 20 kHz tones were measured before...

Exposure to organic solvents has been shown to be ototoxic in animals and there is evidence that these solvents can induce hearing loss in humans. In this study, the effects of inhalation of the possibly ototoxic solvent ethyl benzene on the cochlear function and morphology were evaluated using three complementary techniques: (1) reflex...

The unmasked underwater hearing sensitivities of an 8-year-old male and a 7-year-old female Steller sea lion were measured in a pool, by using behavioral psychophysics. The animals were trained with positive reinforcement to respond when they detected an acoustic signal and not to respond when they did not. The signals were narrow-band,...
