The research of this project is concerned with the functional anatomy of the auditory thalamocortical, corticothalamic and interhemispheric connections of the auditory cortex using Mongolian gerbils as model organism.
In course of this project we are studying the detailed anatomy of these systems by anterograde tract tracing techniques as well as the morphology of the axonal terminals at the light and electron microscopic level.
Furthermore, we try to understand the functional role of the above-named projection systems. This issue we are approaching by examining the learning-dependent behavioral and electrophysiological consequences of specific photolytic lesions of the respective projection neurons.
