Project Description

Afferent Fiber Properties

What underlies the broad range of afferent fiber properties?

What are the pre-and post synaptic specializations that underlie the diversity in these properties?

Afferent fibers have different sensitivities to sound input. We are determining whether these differences occur pre or post synaptically and whether these fibers are divided morphologically around the hair cell.
