In a previous paper we provided evidence that crossed projection neurons are generated earlier than uncrossed projection neurons in the lateral superior olive. The aim of the present study was to determine if other major nuclei of the superior olivary complex (SOC), the medial superior olivary (MSO), the superior paraolivary (SPN) and the medial trapezoid(More)
In this study, protective actions of the sex steroid hormones, progesterone, testosterone, and 17β-estradiol, against oxygen-glucose deprivation (OGD)/reoxygenation-induced neuronal cell death were examined using rat organotypic hippocampal slice cultures. Progesterone, testosterone, and 17β-estradiol significantly attenuated neuronal cell death elicited by(More)
It has been known that the inferior colliculus contains many glycinergic fibers of both intrinsic and extrinsic nature. In the present study, glycine-immunoreactive (Gly-ir) synapses were examined in the central nucleus of the inferior colliculus in the cat. About half of 891 axondendritic synapses that were identified in the present study were Gly-ir. In(More)
