The golden hamster (Mesocricetus auratus) is often used in auditory research, but little is known about the anatomical organization of its olivocochlear (OC) neurons, the source of the efferent innervation of the organ of Corti. Accordingly, we labeled the OC neurons projecting to one cochlea by means of retrograde axonal transport of FluoroGold. In four animals, all labeled OC neurons were counted and digital images of the labeling were captured and analyzed morphometrically. In one case, a 3D… CONTINUE READING
