Acute and Long-Term Effects of Noise Exposure on the Neuronal Spontaneous Activity in Cochlear Nucleus and Inferior Colliculus Brain Slices
Transversal schematic diagrams (left) and corresponding histological sections (Nissl-stained 40 μm brain slice preparations, right) from the mouse brain including the investigated structures of the cochlear nucleus (black labelled area in (a)) in the brainstem with its dorsal and ventral subdivision (DCN and VCN, resp.) and the inferior colliculus (IC, black labelled area in (b)) in the midbrain. Layers correspond to the prepared brain slice sections. Pictures were taken and modified from the mouse brain atlas by Paxinos and Franklin .
