HAIR cells of inner ear sense organs and of lateral line organs in fish are innervated by afferent nerve fibres, to which they transmit information about mechanical stimuli. Efferent inhibitory nerve fibres, which originate in the central nervous system, also innervate most hair cells at their base (Fig. 1b). Recent evidence indicates that both these synapses are chemical; excitatory postsynaptic potentials (e.p.s.p.s) have been recorded in afferent nerve terminals in response to mechanical… Expand
