Gleich, Otto and Johnstone, Brian M. and Robertson, Donald (1990) Effects of L-Glutamate on auditory afferent activity in view of its proposed excitatory transmitter role in the mammalian cochlea. Hearing Research 45 (3), pp. 295-312.
This report describes the effects of L-glutamate (Glu) introduced into the perilymph of scala tympani on the spontaneous and tone-evoked activity of guinea pig single primary auditory afferents. Concentrations below 2 mmol/1 were in general ineffective, while a concentration of 5 mmol/1 caused a marked decrease of the neural activity. At 2 mmol/1, roughly 60% of the Glu-perfusions were effective ...
