Reliable neuronal spiking is critical for a myriad of computations performed by neural circuits. This is particularly evident for sound localization cues in the auditory brainstem circuits that detect timing and intensity differences of sounds arriving at two ears. The calyx of Held-principal neuron synapse in the medial nucleus of the trapezoid body (MNTB) in this circuit is traditionally viewed as a reliable relay, which converts contralateral excitatory inputs to inhibitory outputs to… CONTINUE READING
