Neuroplasticity of the adult primate auditory cortex following cochlear hearing loss. qxd 30 1/8/09 10:56 AM Page 30 Section I ■ Hearing and Hearing Loss studies are important and revealing, they do not necessarily describe what happens at lower levels of the central nervous system. In what other areas of the brain might plasticity occur? If plastic changes occur at lower levels, the changes might simply be passively expressed at the cortical level. It remains important to determine the nature as well as the site of plasticity.

To answer some of these questions, we must first start by defining the nature of adult plasticity and discover and describe its role in the brain. Fortunately, many of the principles that apply to one area of the brain, such as the somatosensory or visual cortex, often apply to other areas, such as the auditory cortex. This generality of observations may be very helpful to auditory researchers, especially given that some techniques required to study the auditory system, such as cochlear ablation, have significant limitations.

Sound is created by vibrations in air. The brain forms the physical substrate for our ability to hear, which is involved in the acquisition of language and social communication, the localization of sounds in space, and the appreciation of music. Changes in brain function are thought to mediate changes in behavior, and vice versa. The malleability or “plasticity” of these mutually dependent functions represents the topic for the present chapter as we discuss some of those factors that underlie brain mechanisms of hearing.
