Pharmacological aspects of excitatory synaptic transmission to second‐order vestibular neurons in the frog
Synaptic excitation of second‐order vestibular neurons is mediated by two principal afferents: vestibular afferents projecting into the brain via the VIIIth cranial nerve and commissural afferentsExpand

Presynaptic actions of cholinergic agents upon the hair cell-afferent fiber synapse in the vestibular labyrinth of the frog
Spontaneous activity of semicircular canal afferents in the isolated labyrinth of the frog is altered by bath application of cholinergic agonists. Muscarinic agonists can produce an increase inExpand

Basic optokinetic-ocular reflex pathways in the frog
Frogs (Rana temporaria) have two midbrain nuclei that receive contralateral retinal afferents, and whose neurons respond to optokinetic stimulation. The basal optic nucleus is composed ofExpand

Pharmacology of the vestibular hair cell-afferent fiber synapse in the frog
The isolated, intact, membranous labyrinth of the frog (Rana temporaria) has been investigated electrophysiologically in vitro to determine the nature of the transmitter substance at the synapseExpand

Ontogenetic expression of trk neurotrophin receptors in the chick auditory system
Neurotrophins and their cognate receptors are critical to normal nervous system development. Trk receptors are high‐affinity receptors for nerve‐growth factor (trkA), brain‐derived neurotrophicExpand

Developmental regulation of ephA4 expression in the chick auditory brainstem
The avian auditory brainstem nuclei nucleus magnocellularis (NM) and nucleus laminaris (NL) display highly precise patterns of neuronal connectivity. NM projects tonotopically to the dorsal dendritesExpand

Synapsin I injected presynaptically into goldfish mauthner axons reduces quantal synaptic transmission.
1. Synapsin I was injected into a vertebrate presynaptic axon to analyze its action on quantal synaptic transmission. Two microelectrodes were used for simultaneous intracellular recording from pairsExpand

The anuran mauthner cell and its synaptic bed
Abstract We have performed a general study of the premetamorphic anuran Mauthner cell using anatomical techniques. Anatomical findings confirm that, as in other amphibia, the tadpole Mauthner cellExpand

Vestibular type I and type II hair cells. 1: Morphometric identification in the pigeon and gerbil.
Classically, type I and type II vestibular hair cells have been defined by their afferent innervation patterns. Little quantitative information exists on the intrinsic morphometric differencesExpand
