14-C-Deoxyglucose Labeling of the Auditory Neostriatum in Young and Adult Guinea Fowl

Abstract

Auditory areas in the forebrain of the guinea fowl have proven to be excellent substrates for a functional analysis with the deoxyglucose technique in non-anesthetized birds. The method yields sufficient resolution to appreciate differential labeling after stimulation with tones and more complex patterns including species-specific calls (Scheich et al., 1979a). The aim of the present report is to describe some differences of stimulus induced labeling between young birds at various ages after hatching and adult birds. The emphasis hereby is placed on the tonotopic organization of these forebrain areas as revealed with this anatomical method.
