Neurons in the rat ventral cochlear nucleus which project to the inferior colliculus were identified after retrograde labelling of the neural tracer wheat germ agglutinin conjugated to horse radish peroxidase. After tracer injection into the Inferior Colliculus, electron microscopy and immunocytochemical localization of glycine, GABA and glutamate in retrograde labelled neurons were employed. In the acoustic root area and posterior ventral cochlear nucleus, most of the body surface of the… CONTINUE READING
