Topographical projection from the superior colliculus to the nucleus of the brachium of the inferior colliculus in the ferret: convergence of visual and auditory information.

Abstract:

The normal maturation of the auditory space map in the deeper layers of the ferret superior colliculus (SC) depends on signals provided by the superficial visual layers, but it is unknown where or how these signals influence the developing auditory responses. Here we report that tracer injections in the superficial layers label axons with en passant and terminal boutons, both in the deeper layers of the SC and in their primary source of auditory input, the nucleus of the brachium of the infer...
