Four ABR threshold measurements were taken per mouse, in response to four different audible sounds. The first measurement was for a click; the second for an 8kHz pip; the third for a 16kHz pip; the fourth for a 32kHz pip. The results are presented here broken down by mouse age. Early (young group) onset of hearing impairment occurs at age < 13 weeks. Later (old group) onset of hearing impairment occurs at age ≥ 13 weeks.

Procedures conducted:
• ABR test  Auditory brainstem response.

Mice: inbred   51 strains   ♀♂   age 3-12wks and 15-72wks   2 experimental groups
