와우 유모세포와 청신경의 시냅스 이 승 환 한양대학교 의과대학 이비인후과학교실, 한양대학교 구리병원 이비인후과 Due to the recent development of physiologic study methods, along with morphologic and molecular biologic studies, the understanding about synaptic transmission between cochlear hair cells and auditory nerve terminal has been significantly improved. Auditory system has very delicate mechanism that can differentiate the frequency, loudness, and time difference, and localization of the sound. This mechanism is found not only in central

The synapse in auditory hair cells has very unique morphologic and functional characteristics compare to other synapse in various nerve tissue. The author will describe the characteristics of the synapse transmission between cochlear hair cells and auditory nerve.
