Mammalian lateral olivocochlear (LOC) neurons that are immunoreactive for choline acetyltransferase (ChAT) are also immunoreactive for enkephalin (Enk). To determine whether cochlear efferent neurons in birds might also contain Enk-like immunoreactivity (Enk-LI), we studied the auditory brainstem of the domestic chicken using antisera to ChAT, leucine… CONTINUE READING
