Large spherical cells of the mammalian anteroventral cochlear nucleus (AVCN) receive direct excitatory input from auditory nerve axons. Trans-synaptic regulation of neuronal cell size and cell number after cochlear ablation has been previously demonstrated in neonates of several vertebrate species, including the gerbil. Such changes may be related to loss of spontaneous or evoked auditory nerve electrical activity or to loss of activity-independent factors. We have developed a method to… CONTINUE READING
