Cochlear nucleus pyramidal/fusiform cellDistal apical dendriteGlutamateGranule Cell terminals (T)All levels of the apical dendrites receive input from granule cells (which receive their input from mossy fibers); the terminals make small spherical vesicle (ss) synapses (Smith PH and Rhode WS, 1985 [cat ]97 ) on spines (SOBiv p126,130). The neurotransmitter is GLU (Hunter C et al, 1993 [mammal ]98 ; Osen KK et al, 1995 [guinea pig ]99 ; Manis PB and Molitor SC, 1996 [mammal ]100 ) (SOBiv p128). Granule cells are similar to cerebellar granule cells (SOBiv p132).
