  1. DETERMINANTS OF NEURONAL CONNECTIVITY IN THE COCHLEA
    DONNA WHITLON; Fiscal Year: 1999
    ..But in addition, the results will be pertinent to questions of neural regeneration. They will be relevant to experimental attempts to encourage reestablishment of functional fiber networks in the cochlea after nerve damage. ..
