Abstract

Guinea pigs were pre-exposed to a low level acoustic stimulus prior to exposure to a stimulus known to yield a permanent threshold shift. This pre-treatment resulted in: 1) approximately a 20 dB reduction in the threshold shift relative to animals not pre-exposed, and 2) complete recovery from the threshold shift after 2 months.
