Neuroendocrine Functions and Labyrinthectomy Abstract #798

Introduction: We tested the action of proline-rich peptide (PRP-1) and cobra venom Naja Naja Oxiana (NOX) on Deiters' nucleus neurons at 3rd, 15th and 35th days after unilateral labyrinthectomy (UL). Early and late tetanic, post-tetanic potentiation and depression of Deiters' neurons to bilateral high frequency stimulation of hypothalamic supraoptic and paraventricualar nuclei was studied. The analysis of spike activity was carried out by mean of on-line selection and special program.
Aim(s): The complex averaged peri-event time and frequency histograms show the increase of inhibitory and excitatory reactions of Deiters' neurons at early stage of vestibular compensation following PRP-1 and NOX injection, reaching the norm at the end of tests. In histochemical study the changes in Ca(2+)-dependent acidic phosphatase (AP) activity in neurons was discovered.
Materials and methods: It was shown that in UL animals the total disappearance or delay of decolorizing of Deiters' neurons lead to neurodegenerative pattern as cellular "shade".

#790 Cerebellar and hypothalamic regulation of vestibular compensation after unilateral labyrinthectomy in rat
Introduction: The mechanisms of inhibitory regulation of neuronal activity of the vestibular system in health and in the vestibular compensation (VC) occurred with participation of the cerebellum, while non-cerebellar pathways are essential in restoring the stability of visual orientation during movement.

#799 Action of the Hypothalamic Proline-Rich Peptide During Vestibular Compensation Following Unilateral Labyrinthectomy
Introduction: There are uncovered mechanisms of the vestibular compensation (VC), following unilateral labyrinthectomy (UL). We consider the hypothalamic proline-rich peptide (PRP-1) action on Deiters’ lateral vestibular nucleus (LVN) neurons upon dynamics of recovery after UL was carried out.
