Neurons in the cochlear nuclei controlling the tensor tympani muscle in the rat: a study using pseudorabies virus.

Abstract

The middle ear muscle reflex has been implicated in modulation of auditory input and protection of the inner ear from acoustic trauma. However, the identification of neurons in the cochlear nuclei participating in this reflex has not been fully elucidated. In the present study, we injected the retrograde transynaptic tracer pseudorabies virus into single… (More)
