1. Recordings were made from single afferent fibers in the inferior vestibular nerve. Firing rates of a substantial portion of the afferents with irregular background activity increased in response to moderately intense tone bursts. 2. Spontaneous activity from acoustically responsive vestibular afferents was statistically analyzed and compared with data from a more widespread sampling of primary afferents in the cat's vestibulocochlear nerve. Acoustically responsive vestibular afferents had… CONTINUE READING
