Abstract

The effects of three concentrations of neomy-cin, administered by a method of acute perilymphatic per-fusion of the guinea pig cochlea, on the cochlear micro-phonic potential (CM) at 4 kHz and 500 Hz are described. A concentration-dependent reduction in CM occurred during the 60 minute perfusion period. Neomycin at 10-4 M did not change the CM magnitude, while at 10-3 and 10-2 M it caused 4 kHz (and 500 Hz) CM reductions which began within 24 (for both frequencies) minutes and 10 (and 12) minutes of drug application respectively. CM reduction proceeded at a higher rate for greater neomycin concentration. The perfusion technique, the implication of the frequency indifference, and the potential of the perfusion technique for inner ear biochemical analysis are discussed.
