Description

Neurons of the avian cochlear nucleus magnocellularis (NM) receive glutamatergic inputs from the spiral ganglion cells via the auditory nerve and feedback GABAergic inputs primarily from the superior olivary nucleus. We investigated regulation of Ca(2+) signaling in NM neurons with ratiometric Ca(2+) imaging in chicken brain slices. Application of exogenous glutamate or GABA increased the intracellular Ca(2+) concentration ([Ca(2+)](i)) in NM neurons. Interestingly,
