Connecting the auditory brain stem to sensory, motor, and limbic systems, the inferior colliculus is a critical midbrain station for auditory processing. Winer and Schreiner's The Inferior Colliculus, a critical, comprehensive reference, presents the current knowledge of the inferior. This paper presents data on the structure of the lower auditory centers and the connections of the inferior colliculus of the greater horse- shoe bat, Rhinolophus ferrumequinum, and tries to clarify the question of whether there are fundamental differences in the anatomical organization of the central auditory system of.   The central nucleus of the inferior colliculus in rat: A Golgi and computer reconstruction study of neuronal and laminar structure. The Journal of Comparative Neurology, (1), 1– PubMed CrossRef Google ScholarCited by: The inferior colliculus is essential for hearing. Connecting the auditory brain stem to sensory, motor, and limbic systems, the inferior colliculus is a critical midbrain station .

The inferior colliculus (IC) is a midbrain auditory structure that integrates information from several ascending auditory pathways, descending corticotectal projections, intercollicular pathways and extra-auditory sources, particularly from the somatosensory system. Three subdivisions may be distinguished in the IC, both morphologically and on the basis of different .   The inferior colliculus is made up of two lobes, which process sound signals from both ears. It is sub-divided into the external cortex, lateral cortex, and central cortex. It also performs the function of integrating multiple audio signals that help to filter out sounds from vocalizing, breathing. The brachium of inferior colliculus is a connecting arm between the inferior colliculus and medial geniculate body. The superior colliculus (SC) is a laminated structure sitting astride the midbrain of the vertebrate brainstem, where it is strategically placed to receive incoming sensory information and to direct brainstem activity. Its primary function is to direct the sensory structures of the head towards objects of by:

The inferior colliculus (IC) receives convergent projections from a diversity of sources within the auditory pathway and is an important midbrain structure for processing acoustic information. The structure and connections of the inferior colliculus; an investigation of the lower auditory system. Located in the midbrain, the inferior colliculus (IC) is the hub of the central auditory system. Although the IC plays important roles in speech processing, sound localization, and other auditory. The Inferior colliculus is the main midbrain nucleus and important structure of the auditory passage. It is not just a point on the way up. It is a receiver of essential information from various sources, and processing this information.
