A laminar organization composed of the dendritic fields of principal neurons and afferent axonal arbors has been proposed as the anatomical substrate for the frequency map at several levels of the mammalian central auditory system, including the inferior colliculus and medial geniculate body (MGB). In contrast to the auditory thalamus in most mammals, the ventral division of the rabbit medial geniculate body (MGV) has cellular laminae visible in routine Nissl stains, allowing a direct… Expand
Auditory thalamic organization: Cellular slabs, dendritic arbors and tectothalamic axons underlying the frequency map
TLDR
It is proposed that the rabbit is an ideal model to investigate the structural-functional basis of functional maps in the mammalian auditory forebrain. Expand
Organization of the Basal Forebrain Cholinergic Projection System: Specific or Diffuse?
TLDR
It is hypothesize that the regionally preferred dendritic orientation varies with the orientation of the characteristic axonal input allowing an optimal, regionally specific sampling of inputs. Expand
Functional Subregions in Primary Auditory Cortex Defined by Thalamocortical Terminal Arbors: An Electrophysiological and Anterograde Labeling Study
TLDR
A model is presented showing how patchy thalamocortical projections participate in the formation of tonotopic and binaural maps in primary auditory cortex. Expand
Neural mechanisms for spectral analysis in the auditory midbrain, thalamus, and cortex.
TLDR
The chapter explains the general principles of coding that serve as a functional and anatomical substrate for spectral analysis in the central auditory system, and also focuses on relating details of a single neuron activity to the underlying anatomical layout and connectivity at different levels of the lemniscal auditory pathway. Expand
Two thalamic pathways to primary auditory cortex
TLDR
It is suggested that cNB projection neurons in superior and iMGBv have distinct anatomic and possibly physiologic organization. Expand
Anatomy of the auditory thalamocortical system in the mongolian gerbil: Nuclear origins and cortical field‐, layer‐, and frequency‐specificities
TLDR
The distinctive layer‐specific distribution of axonal endings within the AC indicates that each of the TC connectivity systems has a specific function in auditory cortical processing. Expand
Subcortical auditory structures in the mongolian gerbil: I. Golgi architecture
TLDR
This study confirms previous results about the organization of the gerbil's subcortical auditory pathway and demonstrates that the cellular organization of these structures corresponds generally to that of other mammalian species, in particular that of rodents. Expand
A Discontinuous Tonotopic Organization in the Inferior Colliculus of the Rat
Audible frequencies of sound are encoded in a continuous manner along the length of the cochlea, and frequency is transmitted to the brain as a representation of place on the basilar membrane. TheExpand
The subcortical auditory structures in the Mongolian gerbil: II. Frequency‐related topography of the connections with cortical field AI
TLDR
The tonotopic and non‐tonotopic corticofugal connections of AI can potentially serve for both conservation and integration of frequency‐specific information in the respective target structures. Expand
A Profile of Auditory Forebrain Connections and Circuits
Establishing rules for auditory information processing requires knowledge of the physiology of the neurons, their connections, and of how local circuits shape signals. When available, as in theExpand

Frequency organization and cellular lamination in the medial geniculate body of the rabbit
TLDR
It is proposed that the central laminated core of the MGV represents an efficient architecture for creating narrow frequency filters involved in fine spectral analysis for physiologically defined isofrequency contours. Expand

Anatomic, intrinsic, and synaptic properties of dorsal and ventral division neurons in rat medial geniculate body.
TLDR
Overall, in vitro data indicate that reported regional differences in the in vivo responses of MGV and MGD cells to auditory stimuli are not well correlated with major differences in intrinsic membrane features or synaptic responses between cell types. Expand
Tangential orientation and spatial order in dendrites of cat auditory cortex: A computer microscope study of Golgi-impregnated material
TLDR
Both statistical and Fourier analyses of the data show that within the tangential plane there is a significant and consistent orientation of the dendritic sticks in a dorso-ventral direction which seems correlated with the cortical isofrequency contours observed in electrophysiological maps of the A1 region. Expand
Comparison of the fine structure of cortical and collicular terminals in the rat medial geniculate body
TLDR
Measurements of axon terminal profile area and postsynaptic dendrite diameter and the presence of a GABAergic inferior collicular projection to dendrites in the medial geniculate body suggest a colliculogeniculate projection that is more complex than the ascending projections to other sensory thalamic nuclei. Expand
Neural architecture of the rat medial geniculate body
TLDR
There were very few small neurons with locally ramifying axons and which could perform an intrinsic role like that of Golgi type II cells, consistent with the small number of such profiles in plastic embedded or Nissl material and the few GABAergic medial geniculate body neurons seen in prior immunocytochemical work.

TLDR
The cytoarchitecture, fiber architecture, and neuronal organization of the adult human medial geniculate body were studied in Nissl, Golgi, and other preparations and three divisions, comparable to those in other mammals, were described. Expand
The central nucleus of the inferior colliculus in the cat
TLDR
The central nucleus of the inferior colliculus in the cat is distinguished by its unique neuropil, which is composed primarily of neurons with disc‐shaped dendritic fields arranged into parallel arrays, or laminae, complemented by the laminar afferent axons from the lateral lemniscus. Expand
