It is known that the dorsal cochlear nucleus and medial geniculate body in the auditory system receive significant inputs from somatosensory and visual-motor sources, but the purpose of such inputs is not totally understood. Moreover, a direct connection of these structures has not been demonstrated, because it is generally accepted that the inferior colliculus is an obligatory relay for all ascending input. In the present study, we have used auditory neurophysiology, double labeling with… CONTINUE READING
