The contribution of the dorsal nucleus of the lateral lemniscus (DNLL) to binaural processing was examined by recording single-unit activity in the rat's inferior colliculus before, during, and after a reversible block of the excitatory activity in DNLL by local injection of kynurenic acid. Recordings were made from the central nucleus of the inferior colliculus with glass micropipettes filled with 3 M sodium acetate. Kynurenic acid (2 mM in Locke's solution) was injected into the DNLL through… CONTINUE READING
