Growing hairs reverses deafness in Mice!
This is major news and very promising science for restoring inner ear hair cells damaged because of too many raves, chronically loud headphones or just the normal passage of time. This means potentially very full-fidelity audition later in life!
The results of this study demonstrate the first hair cell regeneration in an adult mammal. The researchers are excited about the outcomes and their future implications in the possible treatment of deafness in humans.
