There may be a language barrier between us but, although most of what
you present is difficult to relate to, this statement is quite wrong.
The cells, in fact, have cilia ('hairs') on their apical surface and
it is a consequence of the deflection of these cilia that the release
of transmitter is modulated.  The fact that the cells, or, indeed, all
neurons, are "liquid filled long baloons" is irrelevant.
