The ability of auditory fibers in the anuran's VIIIth nerve to regenerate back into the central nervous system after their axons have been served was studied electrophysiologically and anatomically. Single unit recordings in the regenerated portion of the nerve indicate that: (1) fibers from both the amphibian and basilar papillae regenerate; (2) tuning curves of regenerated fibers, as in normal fibers, are 'V' shaped and retain their sharp frequency selectivity; (3) latency and threshold… CONTINUE READING
