Highlights: Normal acoustic stimulation is not required for maintenance of afferent innervations. Cochlear synapses are subject to activity-dependant plasticity after hearing onset. Presynaptic and postsynaptic proteins are affected by reduced acoustic stimulation. Abstract: Neural activity during early development is known to alter innervation pathways in the central and peripheral nervous systems. We sought to examine how reduced sound-induced sensory activity in the cochlea affected the consolidation of glutamatergic synapses between inner hair cells (IHC) and the primary auditory neurons as these synapses play a primary role in transmitting sound information to the brain. A unilateral conductive hearing loss was induced prior to the onset of sound-mediated stimulation of the sensory hair cells, by rupturing the tympanic membrane and dislocating the auditory ossicles in the left ear of P11 mice. Auditory brainstem responses at P15 and P21 showed a 40–50-dB increase in thresholds for frequencies 8–32 kHz in the dislocated ear relative to the control ear. Immunohistochemistry and confocal microscopy were subsequently used to examine the effect of this attenuation of sound stimulation on the expression of RIBEYE, which comprises the presynaptic ribbons, Shank-1, a postsynaptic scaffolding protein, and the GluA2/3 and 4 subunits of postsynaptic AMPA receptors. Our results show that dislocation did not alter the number of pre- or postsynaptic protein puncta. However, dislocation did increase the size of RIBEYE, GluA4, GluA2/3 and Shank-1 puncta, with postsynaptic changes preceding presynaptic changes. Our data suggest that a reduction in sound stimulation during auditory development induces plasticity in the molecular make-up of IHC glutamatergic synapses, but does not affect the number of these synapses. Up-regulation of synaptic proteins with sound attenuation may facilitate a compensatory increase in synaptic transmission due to the reduced sensory stimulation of the IHC.

When "Sensory integration and the child" was first published in the 1970s, it was designed to help professional as well as the doctors, therapists, teachers and parents. In order to make the information more accessible to families, this new edition has preserved the core content and practical solutions, while moving technical sections to the appendixes.

Cerebral palsy is an umbrella-like term used to describe a group of chronic disorders impairing control of movement that appear in the first few years of life and generally do not worsen over time. The disorders are caused by faulty development of or damage to motor areas in the brain that disrupts the brain's ability to control movement and posture. Symptoms of cerebral palsy include difficulty with fine motor tasks, difficulty maintaining balance or walking, involuntary movements. The symptoms differ from person to person and may change over time. Some people with cerebral palsy are also affected by other medical disorders, including seizures or mental impairment, but cerebral palsy does not always cause profound handicap. Early signs of cerebral palsy usually appear before 3 years of age. Infants with cerebral palsy are frequently slow to reach developmental milestones such as learning to roll over, sit, crawl, smile, or walk. Cerebral palsy may be congenital or acquired after birth. There is no standard therapy that works for all patients. This new book gathers outstanding new research and insights from throughout the world.

Sensory Play draws upon current research findings and observations to present an informative and practical guide to maximising children's sensory play opportunities. This guide enables practitioners to understand the values and benefits of sensory play, incorporating case studies and current research findings to make practical links to the EYFS. Sensory play is set within a wider context, highlighting links to child development theories. This title explains how sensory play can be a valuable tool in delivering curriculum outcomes in a wide variety of settings.
