We studied the chick auditory system to determine whether there is a normal developmental reduction in the number of cochlear nerve axons innervating individual cochlear nucleus (nucleus magnocellularis, NM) neurons. We also examined the preterminal branching patterns of cochlear nerve axons during development. The number of cochlear nerve axons innervating individual NM neurons was estimated by counting the increments in the postsynaptic response as the intensity of cochlear nerve electrical… CONTINUE READING
