Differential afferent projections to the inferior colliculus from the cochlear nucleus in the albino mouse

Abstract:

Ryugo, D.K., F.H. Willard, and D.M. Fekete (1981)
Differential afferent projections to the inferior colliculus from the cochlear nucleus in the albino mouse. Brain Research 210:342-349.

The axonal projections from the cochlear nuclear complex to the inferior colliculus (IC) were examined using the retrograde transport of horseradish peroxidase. Thin sheets of neurons in the dorsal and ventral cochlear nuclei were found to project axons in a topographic fashion to restricted laminae of the central nucleus of the IC; the dorsal cochlear nucleus was also found to project axons to the external cortex. No projections were detected from the cochlear nuclear complex to the dorsal cortex of the IC.
