      Birds and reptiles can restore their hearing. It's good to know they are able to find more animals with this ability.

      Hmm not quite restoring hair cells though. The article says that the sea anemone proteins only help repair bonds between hair cells that haven't died off yet. So this may be more of a preventative measure if it ever came to market.

      Yes quite true it clearly states that it might be a treatment for acute damage before the hair cell permanently died ( i think its about 4 to 7 days after trauma)

      Damaged doesn't mean dead. I can hear fine but I bet some of my stereocilia are not at 100%.

      I agree, but lets not forget there is still no certainty what precisely is damaged or even dead in the inner ear after NIHL.
      Most of all, this is another opportunity to understand protein repair mechanisms that exist in other species, but not in mammals.

      I agree,I have horrendous H and T but according to my latest hearing test there's no real measurable loss.20-1000hz is fine and 1000-10,000hz is also perfect with a hearing threshold of 17/18hz bilaterally.It isn't haircells that's causing this but the auditory nerve and synapses,mark my words.

      I don't know what is causing it, but I am ready to stuff sea anemone guts in my ear and cook some up for dinner.
