Early development of intrinsic and synaptic properties of chicken nucleus laminaris neurons.

Onset of auditory brainstem responses in chickens takes place at about embryonic day 11/12 (E11/12). We investigated early development of neuronal properties of chicken nucleus laminaris neurons, the third-order auditory neurons critically involved in sound localization. Whole-cell patch recordings were performed in brainstem slices obtained at E10, E11… (More)
