 Neurons in the lateral superior olivary nucleus (LSO) respond to acoustic stimuli with the ”chopper response”, a regular repetitive firing pattern with a short and precise latency. In the past, this pattern has been attributed to dendritic integration of synaptic inputs. We investigated a possible contribution of intrinsic membrane properties using intracellular recording techniques in a tissue slice preparation. We found two electrophysiological classes of neurons in the LSO. Chopper neurons… CONTINUE READING
