<div><p>Schematic of the auditory pathway showing ascending (<b>A</b>) and descending (<b>B</b>) projections (based on Malmierca, 2003). Projections from the ear and <a>cochlear</a><a href="#_msocom_1">[plw1]</a> nucleus complex are shown in <i>black</i>; superior olivary complex in <i>blue</i>; nuclei of the lateral lemniscus in <i>green tones</i>; inferior colliculus in <a><i>orange</i></a><i> tones</i><a href="#_msocom_2">[plw2]</a> , auditory thalamus in <i>purple tones</i> and auditory cortex in <i>red tones</i>. <i>Dotted lines</i> represent known inhibitory projections. <a><i>Abbreviations</i></a><a href="#_msocom_3">[plw3]</a> : 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.</p></div>
