1. The dorsal medullary nucleus (DMN) of frogs is the presumed homolog of the mammalian cochlear nucleus (CN). Like the CN, the DMN is the sole target of centrally projecting primary auditory-nerve fibers and the first central auditory-processing center. To study the transformation of acoustic information in the DMN, we have utilized relatively simple stimuli--tone bursts--to detail the temporal discharge patterns of DMN neurons that can be compared with those shown by auditory-nerve fibers. 2… CONTINUE READING
