The dorsal cochlear nucleus (DCN) projects axons to the contralateral central nucleus of the inferior colliculus (ICC) via the dorsal acoustic stria (DAS). In the anaesthetised cat, when brief electrical stimuli are applied to the caudal surface of DCN, single unit and field activity is evoked preferentially in the ventro-lateral region of ICC. Most single ICC units judged by electrical stimulation to have received a direct input from DCN are excited by contralateral tonal stimulation and… CONTINUE READING
