  • Number of videos for Th2A-CreER and Drd2Cre;GCaMP6f noise-exposed mice and their control littermates by category. Individual cells represent the number of videos or mice as defined by the leftmost column for the condition described in the topmost row. Videos for Th2A-CreER;GCaMP6f were taken from apical sections of the cochlea whereas videos from Drd2Cre;GCaMP6f are from basal sections of the cochlea. Videos recorded when the tissue is bathed in external solution without the presence of PPADS are designated external and ones with PPADS in the bath are designated as PPADS. NGAF refers to NGAF. To calculate the neuronal response rate, take the value of # photoablation with neural response and divide it by the sum of the values for # photoablation with neural response and # photoablation without neural response. To calculate the NGAF response rate take the value of # with NGAF and divide it by the sum of the values for # with NGAF and # without NGAF. To calculate the delayed response rate, take the value of # with delayed response and divide it by the sum of the values for # photoablation with neural response and # photoablation without neural response.
