"These findings may provide the first step toward regenerating spiral ganglion neurons, the nerve cells that send sound representations to the brain," said Dr Alain Dabdoub, co-investigator and assistant professor of surgery with the division of otolaryngology at the UC San Diego School of Medicine.

Furthermore, the maturation of reinnervation of the regenerated HCs and the function of the reformed ribbon synapse remain open to question, such as the contact between stereocilium and tectorial membrane, reorganization of the innervation of afferent Type I and Type II spiral ganglion neuron, and the integral interplay of outer hair cell based cochlear amplification.
Most and possibly all of the apical ganglion neurons give rise to distal cytoplasmic extensions (putative dendrites) that extend to the exposed epidermal surface of the larva within the plus-shaped apical ciliary field.

In this study, whole-cell patch-clamp recordings were performed on two main subtypes (IK,A and IK,V channels) of voltage-gated potassium (KV) channels in small-diameter(<30[micro]m) trigemianl ganglion neurons to analyze the effects of CGA in an inflammatory environment created by Prostaglandin E2 (PGE2).

(20-22) These studies demonstrated that single labelled dorsal root ganglion neurons that have particular mechanoreceptors in the skin of the back, and central processes and terminations in the dorsal horn of the spinal cord, respond to specific stimuli applied to their receptive fields, and represent a characteristic adaptation of the mechanoreceptor.

aspersa, axons from pedal ganglion neurons that show immunoreactivity to 5-HT antibodies extend the full length of the pedal sole and ramify to form a plexus primarily over the rims of the pedal sole.
