In this study the functional role of afferent nerve calyx surrounding the type I vestibular hair cells was investigated. Synaptic microvesicles were present at the apex of the calyx in the vestibular epithelium of human foetuses at 9 weeks from gestation. Whole cell clamped type I hair cells isolated from guinea pig epithelium presented active movements as shortening of the neck and tilting of the cuticular plate at the cessation of the depolarising step. These movements were calcium dependent… CONTINUE READING
