    ..Since we detected neither GABAA nor GABAB receptors in the TBM by RT-PCR, the function of the GABA-containing gamma-motoneurons remains unclear. ..

    ..These results indicate that cells in this area are selective to tones with low frequency, implying the importance of such auditory information in the neural circuitry of layer 1 of DCIC. ..

    ..The absence of co-expression of VGLUT1 and VGLUT2 in the medial geniculate, medial superior olive, and VNLL suggests that synaptic responses in the target neurons of these nuclei may be different between rodents and macaque monkeys. ..

    ..In the last part of this review, we describe an in vivo calcium imaging study that sheds light on the functional organization of the IC. ..
