The primary afferent neurons of the vestibular ganglion convey sensory information from hair cells in the semicircular canals and otolith organs to the vestibular nuclei, the adjacent brainstem and the cerebellum. The intrinsic firing properties of vestibular ganglion cells (VGCs) are heterogeneous and have been classified into phasic, intermediate and tonic firing types on the basis of their response to injected depolarizing currents. A previous study from our group showed that the proportion… CONTINUE READING
