Projections from auditory cortex (AC) can alter the responses of cells in the inferior colliculus (IC) to sounds. Most IC cells show excitation and inhibition after stimulation of the AC. AC axons release glutamate and excite their targets, so inhibition is presumed to result from cortical activation of GABAergic IC cells that inhibit other IC cells via local projections. However, it is not known whether cortical axons contact GABAergic IC cells directly. We labeled corticocollicular axons by… CONTINUE READING
