The combined removal of the labyrinthine sense organs and of the ganglion of Scarpa on one side (postganglionic section) resulted in a degeneration of afferent fibres in the eighth nerve of the frog (Rana temporaria) within 2–4 days. If the eighth nerve was sectioned more peripherally (preganglionic section) and its distal part was removed together with the labyrinthine organs degeneration of afferent fibres was absent or restricted to very few fibres. Electrical stimulation of vestibular… CONTINUE READING
