Serotoninergic innervation of stapedial and tensor tympani motoneurons.

Retrograde tracing and neurotransmitter immunohistochemistry were combined to determine whether serotonin neurons innervated stapedial and tensor tympani motoneurons. With high-power light microscopy, putative axo-somatic and axo-dendritic contacts were observed between serotonin-positive endings and both stapedial and tensor tympani motoneurons, indicating that serotonin neurons terminate on brainstem motoneurons innervating the middle-ear muscles. With this connection, the serotonin system may directly modulate middle-ear muscle activity.[1]
