Gleich, Otto ; Hamann, Ingo ; Kittel, Malte C. ; Klump, Georg M. ; Strutz, Jürgen


We investigated forward masking in 21 gerbils as a function of age (5-47 months) using 400ms maskers at 40dB SPL and a 20ms, 2.85kHz probe presented 2.5ms after the masker. Elevated thresholds for the unmasked probe were only observed in animals older than 3 years. Unmasked thresholds showed no significant age-dependent hearing loss in animals below 3 years of age. In these animals without ...
