Rat auditory pathway schematic
Figures are generally photos, graphs and static images that would be represented in traditional pdf publications.
Schematic of the auditory pathway showing ascending (A) and descending (B) projections (based on Malmierca, 2003). Projections from the ear and cochlear[plw1] nucleus complex are shown in black; superior olivary complex in blue; nuclei of the lateral lemniscus in green tones; inferior colliculus in orange tones[plw2] , auditory thalamus in purple tones and auditory cortex in red tones. Dotted lines represent known inhibitory projections. Abbreviations[plw3] : CIC: central nucleus of the inferior colliculus; DCIC: dorsal cortex of the inferior colliculus; DCN: dorsal cochlear nucleus; DNLL: dorsal nucleus of the lateral lemniscus; ECIC: external cortex of the inferior colliculus; INVN: interstitial nucleus of the vestibulocochlear nerve; LNTB: lateral nucleus of the trapezoid body ; LSO: lateral superior olive; MGD: dorsal subdivision of the medial geniculate body; MGM: medial subdivision of the medial geniculate body; MGV: ventral subdivision of the medial geniculate body; MNTB: medial nucleus of the trapezoid body; MSO: medial superior olive; PIL: posterior intralaminar nucleus; PP: peripendicular nucleus; PRN: pontine reticular nucleus; Rt: reticular thalamic nucleus; SPON: superior paraolivary nucleus;Te1: primary auditory cortex ; Te2: caudal auditory field; Te3: rostroventral auditory field; VCN: ventral cochlear nucleus; VNLL: ventral nucleus of the lateral lemniscus; VNTB: ventral nucleus of the trapezoid body.
