    In the present study, the behavioral consequences of brief noise exposure during the critical period in rats were assessed in adult rats using the acoustic startle reflex and prepulse inhibition of the acoustic startle reflex. The results showed that although the hearing hresholds in exposed and control animals were not different, a reduced strength of the startle reflex and markedly different efficacy of prepulse inhibition were observed between both groups of animals. Our findings demonstrate that brief noise exposure in rat pups results in altered behavioral responses to sounds in adulthood, indicating, accompanied by anomalies in intensity coding and loudness perception.
