Posthearing Developmental Refinement of Temporal Processing in Principal Neurons of the Medial Superior Olive
In mammals, principal neurons of the medial superior olive (MSO) exhibit biophysical specializations that enable them to detect sound localization cues with microsecond precision. In the presentExpand

Dendritic Sodium Spikes Are Variable Triggers of Axonal Action Potentials in Hippocampal CA1 Pyramidal Neurons
Several early studies suggested that spikes can be generated in the dendrites of CA1 pyramidal neurons, but their functional significance and the conditions under which they occur remain poorlyExpand

Synaptic inputs to stellate cells in the ventral cochlear nucleus.
Auditory information is carried from the cochlear nuclei to the inferior colliculi through six parallel ascending pathways, one of which is through stellate cells of the ventral cochlear nuclei (VCN)Expand

Dichotomy of action-potential backpropagation in CA1 pyramidal neuron dendrites.
In hippocampal CA1 pyramidal neurons, action potentials are typically initiated in the axon and backpropagate into the dendrites, shaping the integration of synaptic activity and influencing theExpand

Dendritic Calcium Spike Initiation and Repolarization Are Controlled by Distinct Potassium Channel Subtypes in CA1 Pyramidal Neurons
In CA1 pyramidal neurons of the hippocampus, calcium-dependent spikes occur in vivo during specific behavioral states and may be enhanced during epileptiform activity. However, the mechanisms thatExpand

Control of submillisecond synaptic timing in binaural coincidence detectors by Kv1 channels
Neurons in the medial superior olive process sound-localization cues via binaural coincidence detection, in which excitatory synaptic inputs from each ear are segregated onto different branches of aExpand

Factors mediating powerful voltage attenuation along CA1 pyramidal neuron dendrites
We performed simultaneous patch‐electrode recordings from the soma and apical dendrite of CA1 pyramidal neurons in hippocampal slices, in order to determine the degree of voltage attenuation alongExpand

Recordings from slices indicate that octopus cells of the cochlear nucleus detect coincident firing of auditory nerve fibers with temporal precision
Acoustic information in auditory nerve discharges is integrated in the cochlear nuclei, and ascends through several parallel pathways to higher centers. Octopus cells of the posteroventral cochlearExpand

Physiological identification of the targets of cartwheel cells in the dorsal cochlear nucleus.
The integrative contribution of cartwheel cells of the dorsal cochlear nucleus (DCN) was assessed with intracellular recordings from anatomically identified cells. Recordings were made, in slices ofExpand

Role of Intrinsic Conductances Underlying Responses to Transients in Octopus Cells of the Cochlear Nucleus
Recognition of acoustic patterns in natural sounds depends on the transmission of temporal information. Octopus cells of the mammalian ventral cochlear nucleus form a pathway that encodes the timingExpand
