Associations of Semicircular Canals with chemical compounds

  • N-ethylmaleimide-inhibited electrogenic K+ secretion in the ampulla of the frog semicircular canal [23].
  • Recovery of semicircular canal primary afferent activity in the pigeon after streptomycin ototoxicity [24].
  • 1. The horizontal semicircular canals of anesthetized (barbiturate/ketamine) pigeons were stimulated by rotational and by mechanical stimulation [25].
  • Nerve transections were performed both pre- and postganglionically, and regeneration was assessed in afferent and efferent fibers by bulk labeling the peripheral axons of the horizontal semicircular canal nerve with biocytin after nerve regrowth [26].
  • The response plane and resting rate characteristics of first-order, vestibular, semicircular canal neurons were studied in 67 cats under sodium pentobarbital anesthesia using single-unit recording techniques in the eighth nerve [27].
