Organization of ventrolateral periolivary cells of the cat superior olive as revealed by PEP-19 immunocytochemistry and Nissl stain.


Ventrolateral periolivary cell groups, through their descending projections to the cochlear nucleus (CN) and local projections to principal nuclei of the superior olive, may participate in brainstem mechanisms mediating such tasks as signal detection in noisy environments and sound localization. Understanding the function of these cell groups can be… (More)
