Figure 1: A cytocochleogram plotted using the mean values of hair cell counts in the right and left ears of normal animals which were inoculated with the Ad.GDNF vector in the left ear. Percent cell loss is shown as a function of location along the cochlear duct (in mm distance from the apical end). The number of hair cells in the left ear is very similar to the right ear, since inoculated (left) ears do not display hair cell loss.
