Stimulus-Specific Adaptation in the Inferior Colliculus of the Anesthetized Rat
To identify sounds as novel, there must be some neural representation of commonly occurring sounds. Stimulus-specific adaptation (SSA) is a reduction in neural response to a repeated sound. PreviousExpand

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

Novelty detector neurons in the mammalian auditory midbrain
Novel stimuli in all sensory modalities are highly effective in attracting and focusing attention. Stimulus‐specific adaptation (SSA) and brain activity evoked by novel stimuli have been studiedExpand

The central nucleus of the inferior colliculus in rat: A Golgi and computer reconstruction study of neuronal and laminar structure
The cellular basis for the laminar structure of the central nucleus of the inferior colliculus has been investigated by computer‐assisted 3‐D reconstruction of Golgi impregnated dendritic arbors,Expand

A Discontinuous Tonotopic Organization in the Inferior Colliculus of the Rat
Audible frequencies of sound are encoded in a continuous manner along the length of the cochlea, and frequency is transmitted to the brain as a representation of place on the basilar membrane. TheExpand

The inferior colliculus of the rat: Quantitative immunocytochemical study of GABA and glycine
Both GABA and glycine (Gly) containing neurons send inhibitory projections to the inferior colliculus (IC), whereas inhibitory neurons within the IC are primarily GABAergic. To date, however, aExpand

Iontophoresis In Vivo Demonstrates a Key Role for GABAA and Glycinergic Inhibition in Shaping Frequency Response Areas in the Inferior Colliculus of Guinea Pig
The processing of biologically important sounds depends on the analysis of their frequency content by the cochlea and the CNS. GABAergic inhibition in the inferior colliculus shapes frequencyExpand

Contribution of GABA- and glycine-mediated inhibition to the monaural temporal response properties of neurons in the inferior colliculus.
1. To determine the contribution of inhibition to the generation of the temporal response patterns of neurons in the inferior colliculus (IC), the effects of iontophoretically appliedExpand

The cytoarchitecture of the inferior colliculus revisited: A common organization of the lateral cortex in rat and cat
The inferior colliculus (IC) is the major component of the auditory midbrain and contains three major subdivisions: a central nucleus, a dorsal cortex, and a lateral cortex (LC). Discrepancies in theExpand
