Structures in the human brainstem auditory pathway, from the proximal end of the cochlear nerve to the inferior colliculus, undergo myelination between the 26th and 29th fetal weeks. By the 26th week of gestation, axons in the cochlear nerve and brainstem pathways have acquired linear arrays of oligodendrocytes, and faint myelin sheaths can be distinguished. By the 29th week, definitive myelination is present in all auditory pathways, including the proximal end of the cochlear nerve, trapezoid… CONTINUE READING
