Frog vestibular organs are endowed with a prominent cholinergic efferent innervation whose stimulation results in several different effects, thereby suggesting diversity in the expression of postsynaptic acetylcholine (ACh) receptors. The application of ACh can mimic efferent stimulation in producing both an inhibition and a facilitation of afferent discharge which are thought to be mediated by at least two distinct ACh receptors present on vestibular hair cells, i.e., alpha9-containing… CONTINUE READING
