Cochlear nucleus pyramidal/fusiform GLU cellDistal apical dendriteNMDA.Immunocytochemistry and in situ hybridisation showed that NMDAR1 was expressed in most CN neuronal types, including the fusiform cell apical dendrites. However, fusiform cell basal dendrites, which are the synaptic sites of cochlear nerve fibers, did not express NMDAR1 (Bilak MM et al, 1996 [mouse]1 ).
