Regional distribution of ionic currents and membrane voltage responses of type II hair cells in the vestibular neuroepithelium.

Abstract

Basolateral ionic currents and membrane voltage responses were studied in pigeon vestibular type II hair cells using a thin slice through either the semicircular canal (SCC) crista or utricular macular epithelium. Whole cell tight-seal patch-clamp recording techniques were used. Current-clamp and voltage-clamp studies were carried out on the same cell. One… (More)
