Abstract

Alpha-synuclein has been implicated in the cellular mechanisms that control auditory sensitivity. In other systems it can also confer protection against cellular injury. Auditory brainstem response thresholds and immunohistochemistry were used to assess the ability of alpha-synuclein to protect against oxidative damage to the cochlea.
