The cochlear nucleus (CN) receives innervation from auditory and somatosensory structures, which can be identified using vesicular glutamate transporters, VGLUT1 and VGLUT2. VGLUT1 is highly expressed in the magnocellular ventral CN (VCN), which receives auditory nerve inputs. VGLUT2 is predominantly expressed in the granule cell domain (GCD), which receives nonauditory inputs from somatosensory nuclei, including spinal trigeminal nucleus (Sp5) and cuneate nucleus (Cu).
