The superior paraolivary nucleus (SPON) is a prominent periolivary cell group of the superior olivary complex. SPON neurons use gamma-aminobutyric acid (GABA) as their neurotransmitter and are contacted by large numbers of glycinergic and GABAergic punctate profiles, representing a dense inhibitory innervation from the medial nucleus of the trapezoid body (MNTB) and from collaterals of SPON axons, respectively. SPON neurons have low rates of spontaneous activity, respond preferentially to the… CONTINUE READING
