The mission of the Mouse Auditory Testing Core Facility is to assist the NIDCD’s principal investigators and their collaborators with tests of auditory and vestibular function in rodents. We specialize in performance of auditory brainstem response (ABR) testing to estimate hearing sensitivity, distortion-product otoacoustic emission (DPOAE) testing for evaluation of cochlear (inner ear) function, and vestibular sensory evoked potential (VsEP) testing to evaluate vestibular function. We can also perform noise exposures. We offer consultation on and training in these techniques.
