Abstract : Responses of horizontal ampullar systems to standard electrical stimulation delivered to the round window of each ear in decerebrate and decerebellate cat were studied in single cells of the vestibular system before and after injection intravenously of Marezine (cyclizine lactate). No differences were recorded in cellular activity after injection of Marezine. Results would indicate that Marezine exerts no influence on the vestibular nerve or on the primary vestibular nuclei, but that its influence may be exerted on other parts of the central nervous system (cerebellum or cerebrum) in its role as an anti-motion-sickness drug.
