    ..The differential response to synchronicity of the stimulation puts emphasis on the importance of the temporal structure of EIS with respect to its potential for changing brain structure and brain function in stimulus-specific ways. ..

    ..Thus, loss of sensory activation leads mainly, but not exclusively, to a reduction of tissue volume in the ventral CN of the deaf side, leaving the contralateral side apparently unaffected. ..

    ..These results indicate a major role of MMP-2 in lesion-induced remodeling of central auditory networks and suggest a cooperativity with GAP-43-directed axonal outgrowth and synaptogenesis. ..

    ..This change in AP-1 constellation is expected to invoke different transcriptional cascades leading to distinct modes of tissue reorganization and plasticity responses in the mature central auditory system under stimulation. ..
