The purpose of the present study was to determine if the synaptic terminals and nerve fibers in the gerbil cochlea fall into morphologically and spatially classified groups. In cats and guinea pigs, these groups, based on size, location on inner hair cell (IHC) and stratification within the osseous spiral lamina, have been found to correlate with spontaneous rate, threshold sensitivity and projection pattern to the cochlear nucleus. Thus, there may be anatomical data to suggest mechanisms for… CONTINUE READING
