Cochlear nucleus bushy GLU cellSomaNMDA.Using radioactive in situ hybridization methods, heavy labeling for NMDAR1 subunit was observed in all major CN neuronal types with lower labeling for NMDAR2A, 2B, 2C, and 2D mRNA (Sato K et al, 1998 [rat]1 ). The fast and slow components of EPSCs were studied using whole cell patch clamp recordings (Isaacson JS and Walmsley B, 1995 [rat]2 ).
Cochlear nucleus pyramidal/fusiform GLU cellSomaNMDA.Using radioactive in situ hybridization methods, heavy labeling for NMDAR1 subunit was observed in all major CN neuronal types with lower labeling for NMDAR2A, 2B, 2C, and 2D mRNA (Sato K et al, 1998 [rat]1 ).
