The ventral cochlear nucleus (VCN) is the first relay station of the auditory pathway. Presently, little is known about the acoustically evoked intracellular response of neurones in the VCN. We investigated the effect of acoustic stimulation on neurones in the rat VCN using in vivo intracellular recordings and dye-filling. In male rats anaesthetised with urethane (1.3g/kg i.p) microelectrodes containing 1M potassium acetate, or with 4% neurobiotin, were inserted into the VCN. Stable impalements were made from 37 neurones classified as having a Primary-like (n=13), Primary-like with notch (n=4) and Chopper (n=20) response to acoustic stimulation (50 ms pure tones, 5 ms r/f time, 0.2 Hz repetition).
