A and B: Whole cochleae (top panels; scale bar = 100 μm) and SGCs in the apical turn of the cochleae (bottom panels; scale bar = 50 μm) 14 days after noise exposure (4-kHz OBN, 105-dB SPL for 2 h). H-E staining of control [Ctrl] cochlea (A) and diabetic (DM) cochlea (B). Means of the densities of spiral ganglion neurons 14 days after noise exposure are shown in C (n = 4 for each group). Data are means ± SE. *P < 0.05, **P < 0.01 diabetic vs. control group. (A high-quality digital representation of this figure is available in the online issue.)
