The effect of selective lesions on vestibular nuclear complex choline acetyltransferase activity in the rat.


Biochemical, physiological and behavioral evidence suggests that acetylcholine (ACh) may play a neurotransmitter role in central vestibular function. However, the anatomic basis for a possible cholinergic influence on the vestibular nuclear complex (VNC) is unknown. To investigate vestibular cholinergic anatomy, we have made selective lesions of neurons… (More)
