  • A comparison of vestibular and auditory phenotypes in inbred mouse strains 

    Jones, Sherri M.; Jones, Timothy A.; Johnson, Kenneth R.; Yu, Heping; Erway, Lawrence C.; Zheng, Qing Y. (East Carolina University, 2006-05-26)
    The purposes of this research were to quantify gravity receptor function in inbred mouse strains and compare vestibular and auditory function for strain- and age-matched animals. Vestibular evoked potentials (VsEPs) were ...
  • Osteopontin is not Critical for Otoconia Formation or Balance Function 

    Zhao, Xing; Jones, Sherri M.; Thoreson, Wallace B.; Lundberg, Yunxia Wang (East Carolina University, 2008-06)
    Unlike the structural and mechanical role of bone crystals, the inertial mass of otoconia crystals provides a shearing force to stimulate the mechanoreceptors of the utricle and saccule (the gravity receptor organ)under ...
  • A Quantitative Survey of Gravity Receptor Function in Mutant Mouse Strains 

    Jones, Sherri M.; Johnson, Kenneth R.; Yu, Heping; Erway, Lawrence C.; Alagramam, Kumar N.; Pollak, Natasha; Jones, Timothy A. (East Carolina University, 2005-12)
    The purpose of this research was to identify vestibular deficits in mice using linear vestibular evoked potentials (VsEPs). VsEP thresholds, peak latencies, and peak amplitudes from 24 strains with known genetic mutations ...
