The cochleovestibular ganglion of the chick differentiates at early embryonic stages as VIIIth nerve axons enter the brainstem. The tonotopic organization of the auditory portion of the VIIIth nerve can be discerned at the time axons initially reach their brainstem targets. The mechanisms underlying this early organization are not known. Eph receptor(More)
Eph receptors play important roles in axon guidance at the midline. In the auditory system, growth of axons across the midline is an important determinant of auditory function. The avian cochlear nucleus, n. magnocellularis (NM), makes bilateral projections to its target, n. laminaris (NL). We examined the time course of NM axon growth toward the midline,(More)
