Neuropharmacological and Neurophysiological Dissection of Inhibition in the Mammalian Dorsal Cochlear Nucleus
The cochlear nucleus (CN) is the first stage in the auditory pathway at which inhibition (mediated synaptically in response to single stimuli), is encountered, as was first shown by Galambos (’44) — in recordings probably from outlying cells of the dorsal cochlear nucleus (Galambos and Davis,’ 48).
