Clinical reports suggest a link between noise-induced hearing loss and balance disorders in Veterans (Akin et al., 2012), but the structural and physiological basis for this linkage is not well understood. Furthermore, animal models which provide a mechanistic basis connecting noise-induced vestibular dysfunction and fall risk are limited. The vestibular system plays a critical role in detection of head movements and orientation with respect to gravity and is essential for normal postural contro...
