Abstract

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 ...
