One of the most numerous neurons in the cochlear nucleus is the type I stellate cell. Previous attempts to understand the structural basis for its signal coding assumed that integration of synaptic potentials arising from axodendritic synapses should account for the generation of its response properties. However, the present study documents the importance of excitatory and inhibitory types of synapses on the soma and axon. Retrograde transport of cholera toxin B subunit, injected in the… CONTINUE READING
