Survey of intracellular recording in the cochlear nucleus of the cat.


Intracellular recordings were made in the cochlear nucleus of anesthetized cats. In anterior passes, one never obtained sustained depolarizations from 'primary-like' units. For 'chopper' units, however, it was possible to record sustained depolarizations accompaneid by spikes that lasted as long as the tone burst. 'Pauser, 'buildup' and 'on' units also had spike responses that could be accompanied by sustained depolarizations. For 'pauser', 'buildup' and 'on' units, hyperpolarization was not seen during the times when no spike discharges appeared so long as the tone bursts were at the characteristic frequency of the units.
