Startle Response

The Startle Response test is used to measure sensorimotor dysfunction, as well as hearing deficits in response to a loud acoustic stimulus. By providing mice with a wide range of acoustic stimuli of varying loudness, and plotting the intensity of the startle response, a startle threshold indicative of hearing abilities is determined (Loos et al 2012).
