  • The aim of this experiment was to investigate whether vestibular compensation following unilateral vestibular deafferentation (UVD) is associated with changes in the expression of GABAA receptor subunits in the guinea pig vestibular nuclear complex (VNC) at 2, 10, and 30 h post-surgery. Using Western blotting, the α1 and γ2 subunits (but not the β2 subunit) were detected in the VNC of labyrinthine-intact animals. However, there were no significant differences in the protein expression of the α1… CONTINUE READING
