Abstract

Hypothyroidism was induced in guinea pigs by various methods. Using a new technique, electrodes were permanently implanted and action potentials aroused by different sound stimuli recorded and measured. The results obtained before and during the hypometabolic state were analyzed and compared with those obtained after replacement therapy. A tentative attempt was made to extrapolate the changes in pattern and magnitude of the action potentials caused by the experimentally induced hypothyroidism, to the hearing disorders observed in patients with thyroid deficiency.
