The development of synapses clearly differentiates the two kinds of cochlear receptors inner (IHC) and outer (OHC) hair cells. An adult-like pattern of innervation can be seen very early below the IHCs: both afferent and efferent (mainly axo-dendritic) synapses are formed before the onset of function. At the OHC level, drastic changes occur: numerous afferent dendrites retract as the large efferent endings arrive and synapse with the hair cell. This synaptic OHC remodelling coincides with… CONTINUE READING
