Book Summary:

The Oxford Handbook of The Auditory Brainstem provides an introduction as well as an in-depth reference to the organization and function of ascending and descending auditory pathways in the mammalian brainstem. Individual chapters are organized along the auditory pathway beginning with the cochlea and ending with the auditory midbrain. Each chapter provides an introduction to the respective area, and summarizes our current knowledge before discussing disputes and challenges the field currently faces. A major emphasis throughout this book is on the numerous forms of plasticity that are increasingly observed in many areas of the auditory brainstem. Several chapters focus on neuronal modulation of function and synaptic, neuronal, and circuit plasticity, especially under circumstances when they occur most prominently: during development, aging, and following peripheral hearing loss. In addition, the book addresses the role of trauma-induced maladaptive plasticity with respect to its contribution in generating central hearing dysfunction such as hyperacusis and tinnitus. The book is intended for students and postdocs starting in the auditory field, and researchers of related fields who wish to get an authoritative and up-to-date summary of the current state of auditory brainstem research. For clinical practitioners in audiology, otolaryngology, and neurology, the book is a valuable resource of information about the neuronal mechanisms that are major candidates for the generation of central hearing dysfunction.

Book Summary:

Neurons in the central nucleus of the inferior colliculus (ICC) exhibit diverse morphologies, electrophysiological properties, and projection targets. Despite thorough characterization of these features, individual parameters cannot define functional classes. Neurochemical markers could be the answer to connecting form and function. By combining anatomy, physiology, and neurochemical markers, the experiments presented in this dissertation genetically identify cholecystokinin (CCK) neurons in the ICC of the Mongolian gerbil. CCK neurons comprise two classes, one excitatory and one inhibitory, that can be distinguished by both endogenous neurochemical markers and electrophysiological properties. Interdependent adeno-associated viruses were used to express fluorophores and opsins in CCK neurons in the ICC. The specificity of viral expression was confirmed using multiplexed in situ hybridization. To characterize the relationship between endogenous neurochemical markers and electrophysiological properties, we targeted genetically identified CCK neurons in the ICC for in vitro whole-cell current clamp recordings. Both excitatory and inhibitory CCK neurons have an adapting firing pattern. The two groups have distinct action potential signatures, which can be an electrophysiological marker to distinguish the groups. To find synaptic connections between CCK neurons and other neurons in the intrinsic ICC circuit, recordings were made from ICC neurons while CCK inputs were activated with channelrhodopsin. Excitatory and inhibitory post-synaptic potentials from CCK neurons are small and widespread, making connections with more than half of ICC neurons. CCK neurons in the ICC exclusively target the ventral division of the medial geniculate body (MGB), suggesting a functional role in the ascending lemniscal auditory pathway. Axons are highly branched with both fine axons with small boutons and en passant swellings, and medium to large axons with large terminal boutons. To characterize CCK inputs to the MGB, neurons in the vMGB were targeted for whole-cell recordings and CCK inputs were activated with channelrhodopsin. EPSPs and IPSPs are large, with EPSPs large enough to reliably induce action potentials in the post-synaptic vMGB neuron. EPSPs have both ionotropic and metabotropic components and exhibit short-term depression.

Book Summary:

The auditory system is a complex neural system composed of many types of neurons connected into networks. One feature that sets the auditory system apart from other sensory systems, such as somatosensory or visual systems, is the many stages of neural processing that occur between the ear in the periphery and the cerebral cortex. Each stage is composed of specialized types of neurons connected in specific microcircuits that perform computations on the information about sound. To understand this processing, all the tools of neuroscience must be employed. The proposed text integrates cell biology, synaptic physiology, and electrophysiology to fully develop the topic, presenting an overview of the functional anatomy of the central auditory system. It is organized based on the neuronal connectivity of the central auditory system, which emphasizes the neurons, their synaptic organization, and their formation of functional pathways and microcircuits. The goal of the book is to stimulate research into the cell biology of the central auditory system and the characteristics of the specific neurons and connections that are necessary for normal hearing. Future research on the development of the central auditory including that employing stem cells will require such information in order to engineer appropriate therapeutic approaches. ​

Book Summary:

The present edition of The Human Central Nervous System differs considerably from its predecessors. In previous editions, the text was essentially confined to a section dealing with the various functional systems of the brain. This section, which has been rewritten and updated, is now preceded by 15 newly written chapters, which introduce the pictorial material of the gross anatomy, the blood vessels and meninges and the microstructure of its various parts and deal with the development, topography and functional anatomy of the spinal cord, the brain stem and the cerebellum, the diencephalon and the telencephalon. Great pains have been taken to cover the most recent concepts and data. As suggested by the front cover, there is a focus on the evolutionary development of the human brain. Throughout the text numerous correlations with neuropathology and clinical n- rology have been made. After much thought, we decided to replace the full Latin terminology, cherished in all previous editions, with English and Anglicized Latin terms. It has been an emotional farewell from beautiful terms such as decussatio hipposideriformis W- nekinkii and pontes grisei caudatolenticulares. Not only the text, but also the p- torial material has been extended and brought into harmony with the present state of knowledge. More than 230 new illustrations have been added and many others have been revised. The number of macroscopical sections through the brain has been extended considerably. Together, these illustrations now comprise a complete and convenient atlas for interpreting neuroimaging studies.

Book Summary:

The study of neurotransmitters in the human brain has expanded spectacularly in recent years with the application of techniques from immunology and molecular biology. These techniques are now being used successfully to help decipher the chemical architecture of the human nervous system. The results of these studies are of great importance for the understanding and treatment of neurological and psychiatric disorders such as Alzheimer's, Parkinson's and Huntington's diseases, as well as depression and schizophrenia. Professor Istvan Tork was a pioneer in the chemical anatomy of the brain and carried out important studies on the neuroanatomy and distribution of neuropeptides and monoarnines in the brain; some of his best known work dealt with the dual innervation of the cortex by neurons containing serotonin. Istvan Tork died on November 21, 1992, after a long struggle with a temporal lobe glioma, leaving a profound legacy of friendship and scholarly work 1. It was decided by the editors of this volume to commemorate his work and the mentors hip he gave to his many students by convening a symposium on neurotransmitters in the human brain. The symposium was held at the University of New South Wales on February 5, 1994, and was attended by over one hundred participants, including many of Professor Tork's colleagues and students. The papers from this symposium are presented in this volume to stand as a tribute to the breadth and quality of his work and to the energy and achievement of his students.
