Abstract

The axonal projections from the cochlear nuclear complex to the inferior colliculus (IC) were examined using the retrograde transport of horseradish peroxidase. Thin sheets of neurons in the dorsal and ventral cochlear nuclei were found to project axons in a topographic fashion to restricted laminae of the central nucleus the IC; the dorsal cochlear nucleus was alsofound to project axons to the external cortex. No projections were detected from the cochlear nuclear complex to the dorsal cortex of the IC.
