The purpose of this study was to investigate quantitatively the distribution of calcitonin gene-related peptide (CGRP)-positive neurons within the superior olivary complex (SOC) at various postnatal ages. In the lateral superior olive (LSO), most if not all, CGRP-positive cells correspond to the cholinergic portion of the lateral olivocochlear system which innervates the cochlea. Brains from 1-day old (P1) through juvenile (P30) hamsters were used. At all ages, CGRP-positive neurons were seen… CONTINUE READING
