Hidden hearing impairment may be too common than you think


Deccan Chronicle - Feb 20, 2017
They discovered using mice that disruption in the Schwann cells that make myelin, which insulates the neuronal axons in the ear, leads to hidden hearing loss. This means hidden hearing loss could be behind auditory deficits seen in acute demyelinating ...
