Involvement of the neurotransmitters acetyl choline and gamma-aminobutyric acid (GABA) in vestibular compensation has been suggested by electrophysiological and pharmacological experiments. In this investigation we used quantitative autoradiography to study the modification of muscarinic and benzodiazepine receptors in each nucleus of the rat's vestibular nucleus complex. Tissues were examined 3, 14, 23 h and 3, 12, 37 and 90 days after unilateral surgical labyrinthectomies. The present results… CONTINUE READING
