Origins, development and tonotopic organization of inhibitory inputs to the medial nucleus of the trapezoid body
This study is focused on an inhibitory (micro-)circuitry in the auditory brainstem of the mouse (Mus mus). The auditory system's main task lies in the detection (in terms of both location and timing) as well as processing of sound signals that naturally arise in any ecological environment surrounding living organisms. One of the most crucial mammalian nuclei participating in the encoding of these spatial and temporal cues is the medial nucleus of the trapezoid body (MNTB). It is mostly known for its excitatory giant-type synaptic inputs, the calyces of Held that serve as a model synapse in many ...
