Stimulus-Specific Adaptation in the Auditory Thalamus of the Anesthetized Rat
The specific adaptation of neuronal responses to a repeated stimulus (Stimulus-specific adaptation, SSA), which does not fully generalize to other stimuli, provides a mechanism for emphasizing rareExpand

Intracellular Correlates of Stimulus-Specific Adaptation
Stimulus-specific adaptation (SSA) is the reduction in response to a common stimulus that does not generalize, or only partially generalizes, to rare stimuli. SSA is strong and widespread in primaryExpand

Effect of Auditory Cortex Deactivation on Stimulus-Specific Adaptation in the Medial Geniculate Body
An animal's survival may depend on detecting new events or objects in its environment, and it is likely that the brain has evolved specific mechanisms to detect such changes. In sensory systems,Expand

The cortical modulation of stimulus-specific adaptation in the auditory midbrain and thalamus: a potential neuronal correlate for predictive coding
To follow an ever-changing auditory scene, the auditory brain is continuously creating a representation of the past to form expectations about the future. Unexpected events will produce an error inExpand

Divergent and point-to-point connections in the commissural pathway between the inferior colliculi
The commissure of the inferior colliculus interconnects the left and right sides of the auditory midbrain and provides the final opportunity for interaction between the two sides of the auditoryExpand

An Overview of Stimulus-Specific Adaptation in the Auditory Thalamus
In the auditory brain, some populations of neurons exhibit stimulus-specific adaptation (SSA), whereby they adapt to frequently occurring stimuli but retain sensitivity to stimuli that are rare. SAExpand

Conductive Hearing Loss Has Long-Lasting Structural and Molecular Effects on Presynaptic and Postsynaptic Structures of Auditory Nerve Synapses in the Cochlear Nucleus
Sound deprivation by conductive hearing loss increases hearing thresholds, but little is known about the response of the auditory brainstem during and after conductive hearing loss. Here, we show inExpand

Is There Stimulus-Specific Adaptation in the Medial Geniculate Body of the Rat?
Neurons in the auditory cortex (AC) show a reduced response to a repeated stimulus, but briefly resume firing if a novel stimulus is presented (Nat Neurosci 6:391-398, 2003). This phenomenon isExpand

A monosynaptic pathway from dorsal cochlear nucleus to auditory cortex in rat
Of the three major subdivisions of the auditory thalamus, the medial subdivision is the only one that receives a direct projection from the dorsal cochlear nucleus. Those cells in the medial auditoryExpand
