The external nucleus of the inferior colliculus (ICx) receives ascending projections from both auditory and somatosensory nuclei. In the guinea pig, both the spinal trigeminal nucleus (TN) and the cochlear nucleus converge in the ventrolateral region of ICx. We investigated the function of trigeminal-collicular pathways by electrically stimulating the TN while recording unit responses from ICx. Pairing electrical stimulation with acoustic stimuli allowed us to investigate the function of… CONTINUE READING
