This study examined the development of individual axon terminal fields in n. laminaris (NL) of the chicken brainstem. In their mature form axons from the nucleus magnocellularis (NM), second-order auditory neurons in the chicken brainstem, project bilaterally onto the NL. Axons from the ipsilateral and contralateral NM neurons form spatially segregated, elongated arbors in the dorsal and ventral neuropil of NL, respectively. The long axes of these arbors correspond to physiologically defined… CONTINUE READING
