Davis et al. proposed that the primary acoustic startle reflex is mediated by synapses in the ventral cochlear nucleus (VCN), lateral lemniscus (LL) and caudal pontine reticular formation (PnC). The collision test was used here to estimate the locations of synapses mediating startle-like responses in these sites, and the conduction times between and across these synapses. Conditioning (C) and test (T) pulses were delivered to pairs of sites in chloral hydrate anaesthetized rats, and current… CONTINUE READING
