Abstract

Lesions of the anterior ventral cochlear nucleus caused degeneration of synaptic endings in the anterior half of the nucleus of the trapezoid body. Lesions of the posterior ventral cochlear nucleus caused similar degeneration in the posterior half of the nucleus of the trapezoid body. Thus, the cochlea projects twice upon the nucleus of the trapezoid body.
