CONCLUSION Current neurotransmission models based on animal studies on the mammalian inner ear not always reflect the situation in human. Rodents and primates show significant differences in characteristics of efferent innervation as well as the distribution of neuroactive substances. OBJECTIVE Immunohistochemistry demonstrates the mammalian efferent system as neurochemically complex and diverse: several neuroactive substances may co-exist within the same efferent terminal. Using light and… CONTINUE READING
