Morphological studies of inner hair cell (IHC) synapses with cochlear nerve terminals have suggested that high- and low-threshold fibers differ in the sizes of their pre- and postsynaptic elements as well as the position of their synapses around the hair cell circumference. Here, using high-power confocal microscopy, we measured sizes and spatial positions of presynaptic ribbons, postsynaptic glutamate receptor (GluR) patches, and olivocochlear efferent terminals at eight locations along the… CONTINUE READING
