Electrophysiological, ultrastructural, and immunohistochemical techniques were utilized to describe the excitatory and inhibitory vestibular innervation of extraocular motor nuclei in the goldfish. In antidromically activated oculomotor motoneurons, electrical stimulation of the intact contralateral vestibular nerve produced short-latency, variable amplitude electrotonic excitatory postsynaptic potentials (EPSPs) at 0.5-0.7 ms followed by chemical EPSPs at 1.0-1.3 ms. Stimulation of the… Expand
Vestibuloocular reflex of the adult flatfish. III. A species-specific reciprocal pattern of excitation and inhibition.
TLDR
These data provide electrophysiological, immunohistochemical, and ultrastructural evidence for reciprocal excitatory/inhibitory organization of the novel vestibulooculomotor projections in adult flatfish and suggest that reciprocal excitation and inhibition are a fundamental, developmentally linked trait of compensatory eye movement circuits in vertebrates. Expand
Pharmacological profile of vestibular inhibitory inputs to superior oblique motoneurons
TLDR
It is demonstrated in isolated preparations of Xenopus laevis tadpoles that the discharge modulation of superior oblique motoneurons during cyclic head motion derives from an alternating excitation and inhibition. Expand
Anatomy and discharge properties of pre-motor neurons in the goldfish medulla that have eye-position signals during fixations.
TLDR
The anatomical findings demonstrate that goldfish medullary position neurons have somata that are isolated from other parts of the oculomotor system, have dendritic fields overlapping with axonal terminations of neurons with velocity signals, and have axons that are capable of relaying commands to the abducens.

Inhibition Reciprocal Pattern of Excitation and Vestibuloocular Reflex of the Adult Flatfish. III. A
TLDR
It is suggested that the development, hindbrain location and function of VOR neurons may be an unchanging trait in not only teleost fish, but also possibly throughout vertebrate phy-logeny. Expand
Discharge properties of morphologically identified vestibular neurons recorded during horizontal eye movements in the goldfish.
TLDR
It is indicated that eye and head velocity signals are processed by vestibular and Area II velocity storage integrator circuitries whereas the velocity-to-position Area I neural integrator generates eye position solely. Expand
Transmitter inputs to different motoneuron subgroups in the oculomotor and trochlear nucleus in monkey
TLDR
The main findings were: (1) the inhibitory control of SIF motoneurons for horizontal and vertical eye movements differs and (2) it is reasonable to assume that the vGlut1 input affects the near response system in the SOA, which houses the preganglionic neurons mediating pupillary constriction and accommodation and the MR MIF mot oneurones involved in vergence.

Disynaptic and polysynaptic statocyst pathways to an identified set of premotor nonspiking interneurons in the crayfish brain
TLDR
The present study finally demonstrates the tri‐synaptic organization of the statocyst‐to‐eyestalk motor neuron pathway in its simplest form, suggesting the critical role of the UGLI‐1 in the central compensation. Expand
Morphology, intrinsic membrane properties, and rotation-evoked responses of trochlear motoneurons in the turtle.
TLDR
The two physiologically defined cell classes have homologues in other vertebrates, suggesting that intrinsic membrane properties play an important role in oculomotor processing. Expand
Morphology and physiology of the cerebellar vestibulolateral lobe pathways linked to oculomotor function in the goldfish.
TLDR
The exceptional separation of eye position and eye velocity signals into two separate hindbrain nuclei represents an ideal model for understanding the precerebellar projection to the vestibulocere Bellum. Expand
Abducens internuclear and ascending tract of Deiters inputs to medial rectus motoneurons in the cat oculomotor nucleus: Synaptic organization
TLDR
The findings in this study suggest that the soma‐dendritic stratification of the two inputs to medial rectus motoneurons may provide a means for the separate control of visuomotor and vestibular functions, respectively. Expand

Electrophysiological and Pharmacological Characterization of Vestibular Inputs to Identified Frog Abducens Motoneurons and Internuclear Neurons In Vitro
TLDR
Results suggest glycine as the transmitter of inhibitory vestibular projections onto AbMOT and AbINT and corroborates the hypothesis that major behavioural differences in the performance of compensatory eye movements between species result from the properties of supplementary networks and not from differences in a common‘three‐neuron’vestibulo‐ocular arc. Expand
Vestibular nystagmus and teleost oculomotor neurons: functions of electrotonic coupling and dendritic impulse initiation.
TLDR
Nystagmus in the horizontal plane is evoked in fish by mechanical stimulation of the ampulla of the horizontal semicircular canal or by electrical stimulation ofthe nerve from this canal, and indirect evidence indicates antidromic spikes invade the impulse-initiating regions in the dendrites. Expand
Inputs from the posterior lateral line nerves upon the goldfish Mauthner cell. I. Properties and synaptic localization of the excitatory component
TLDR
The Mauthner cells (M-cells) of some cyclostomes, teleosts and amphibians receive a powerful excitatory input from the ipsilateral vestibular nerve afferents, but relatively little has been known about the physiological and functional properties of the other afferentS to the M-cells, specifically, the lateral line nerves which innervate the hair cells sensitive to water displacements.

Evidence for glycine as an inhibitory neurotransmitter of vestibular, reticular, and prepositus hypoglossi neurons that project to the cat abducens nucleus
TLDR
Intracellular recordings demonstrated that the vestibular-evoked disynaptic inhibitory postsynaptic potentials in abducens neurons were effectively blocked by strychnine but were unaffected by picrotoxin, an antagonist of GABA. Expand
Inputs from the posterior lateral line nerves upon the goldfish Mauthner cell. II. Evidence that the inhibitory components are mediated by interneurons of the recurrent collateral network
TLDR
The collateral and afferent inhibitions of the goldfish Mauthner cell appear to serve different functions, with the former contributing to the discriminatory properties of the M-cell and the latter preventing activation of the neuron by orthodromic inputs. Expand

Discharge characteristics of medial rectus and abducens motoneurons in the goldfish.
TLDR
The differences in motoneuronal sensitivity coupled with structural variations in the lateral versus the medial rectus muscle suggest that symmetric nasal and temporal eye movements are preserved by different motor unit composition. Expand

TLDR
In vivo learning can alter the balance between excitation and inhibition within a network by modifying one or both of them through modifications of glycinergic transmission. Expand

TLDR
The findings confirm indirect measurements from previous current-clamp studies and validate the normalization procedure used to previously calculate synaptic conductances from IPSP amplitudes, a method that therefore may be applicable to other central neurons. Expand
