Influence of hearing experience on tonotopy and interneuronal communication in the auditory brainstem of rats: A c-Fos study

Nicole Rosskothen-Kuhl, Robert-Benjamin Illing & Roland Laszig
Introduction: The immediate-early-gene c-fos is one of the first genes to be expressed in the auditory system following sensory or electrical intracochlear stimulation (EIS). As a component of the activator-protein-1 signaling pathway it triggers various genes, among them several involved in neuroplastic[for full text, please go to the a.m. URL]
