The three nuclei of the cat lateral lemniscus (dorsal, intermediate, and ventral) were distinguished by their immunoreactivities for the putative inhibitory transmitters, gamma-aminobutyric acid (GABA) and glycine. Each nucleus had a distinct pattern of somatic and perisomatic labeling. The dorsal nucleus contained mostly GABA-immunoreactive neurons (85%),(More)
A sizeable, feedforward, GABAergic projection exists from the inferior colliculus to the medial geniculate body in cats. We compared the dimensions of GABA-immunoreactive and non-immunoreactive axons in the brachium of the cat inferior colliculus, and demonstrate that GABA-immunoreactive axons are among the largest of brachial axons. We propose that, based(More)
One organizing principle of the auditory system is the progressive representation of best tuning frequency. Superimposed on this tonotopy are nucleotopic organizations, some of which are related to the processing of different spatial cues. In the present study, we correlated asymmetries in the outputs of the dorsal nucleus of the lateral lemniscus (DNLL) to(More)
