In Ovo Electroporation in the Chicken Auditory Brainstem Ting Lu1, Ariel Loren Cohen1, Jason Tait Sanchez1,2,3 1Roxelyn and Richard Pepper Department of Communication Sciences and Disorders, Northwestern University, 2Knowles Hearing Research Center, Northwestern University, 3Department of Neurobiology, Northwestern University Auditory brainstem neurons of avians and mammals are specialized for fast neural encoding, a fundamental process for normal hearing functions. These neurons arise from distinct precursors of embryonic hindbrain. We present techniques utilizing electroporation to express genes in the hindbrain of chicken embryos to study gene function during auditory development.
