Chronic increases in spontaneous multiunit activity can be induced in the dorsal cochlear nucleus (DCN) of hamsters by intense sound exposure (Kaltenbach and McCaslin, 1996). It has been hypothesized that this hyperactivity may represent a neural code that could underlie the sound percepts of tinnitus. The goal of the present study was to determine whether(More)
Recent studies have demonstrated the presence of fibres immunoreactive for somatostatin-28 (SS-28), which originate in the brainstem and selectively innervate the magnocellular oxytocin (OT) cells of the supraoptic nucleus. The potential physiological relevance of this pathway was investigated in the present study by measuring plasma OT levels in response(More)
