An atlas of the inferior colliculus of the gerbil in three dimensions.


Journal Article

An atlas of the inferior colliculus of the gerbil is presented in three dimensions. Sections were cut in the transverse (coronal), horizontal or saggital planes and fit to a common cartesian coordinate grid. The sections used for the atlas were reacted for cytochrome oxidase activity, a functional marker that can be used to distinguish different areas in the brainstem. The atlas can be used for representation, comparison and correlation of neuroanatomical, neurophysiological, neurochemical and other data that can be spatially mapped in the inferior colliculus.
