Hearing and Donuts (Brain and Bagels) Seminar
February 14 @ 8:30 am - 9:30 am
Presenter: Donata Oertel, Professor and Chair, Neuroscience, UW Madison
Topic: Nitric-oxide-mediated potentiation in the ventral cochlear nucleus is engaged by activity in the auditory nerve
After finding that T stellate cells, a major group of principal cells of the ventral cochlear nucleus, are interconnected by synapses that are modulated by nitric oxide, we want to know what role these connections play in responses to sound. In slices we found that firing of auditory nerve fibers does activate those connections.
