Abstract

OBJECTIVE: Nonylphenol is a neurotoxic substance widely present in the environment. Although its neurotoxic effects are well-known, to our knowledge, the ototoxic effects of nonylphenol on hearing have not been published in the literature yet. We aimed to investigate the effect of nonylphenol on hearing function in rats.
