Mauthner cells (M-cells) occur as a pair of large, uniquely identifiable neurons at ear level in the hindbrain of premetamorphic amphibians. Each receives synapses from the ipsilateral vestibular nerve (nVIII); these morphologically distinctive terminals, or club endings, are confined to the proximoventral surface and branches of the M-cell lateral dendrite. We have superinnervated this portion of the M-cell to examine the extent to which forming afferent contacts regulate the growth and… CONTINUE READING
