M. Christian Brown, Marie Drottar, Thane E. Benson and Keith Darrow Commissural axons of the mouse cochlear nucleus Journal of Comparative Neurology 521
Labeled commissural axons that project from one cochlear nucleus to the other were studied. They exit the dorsal acoustic stria of the injected cochlear nucleus (left side of figure) to cross the brainstem in the dorsal half, near the olivocochlear bundle (OCB, see figure). In the opposite cochlear nucleus they terminate mostly within a single subdivision, in extents ranging from narrow to broad along both the dorso-ventral (i.e. tonotopic) and rostro-caudal dimensions. These axons may selectively balance processing in the two cochlear nuclei.
