Mechanisms of compensation for vestibular deficits in the frog

  author={Dr. N. Dieringer and Wolfgang Precht},
  journal={Experimental Brain Research},
In hemilabyrinthectomized frogs excitatory responses of central vestibular neurons to electrical stimulation of the remaining vestibular nerve were recorded extra- and intracellularly at different stages (0, 3, and 60 days) after the operation. The output pattern of ipsilateral vestibular neurons sending an axon across the midline via the vestibular commissure to the deafferented nucleus did not change postoperatively. The synaptic efficacy of these commissural axons ending on partially… CONTINUE READING
