Video: Using mice in hearing research

How are mice helping with hearing research? Professor Steve Brown, the Director of the MRC Mammalian Genetics Unit, carries out research investigating the genetic basis of deafness by changing specific genes in mice to find out their role in hearing. His work has led to the identification of a potential new treatment for glue ear in children. Here he describes the work of the MRC Mary Lyon Centre and shows us a hearing experiment in which an anaesthetised mouse is tested for its response to a particular tone.
