Abstract
A point process analysis was performed on extracellular trains of spontaneous activity, which were recorded from anterior semicircular canal units in Scarpa's ganglion in the anesthetized pigeon. For stationary units, the mean interspike interval (ISI) varied from 4.00 to 51.22 ms. and the coefficient of variation ranged from 0.05 to 0.88. Selected tests indicated that 63.6% of units had the properties of a renewal process.
