Definition Large multipolar cells located in the deep Large multipolar cells located in the deep layer of the dorsal cochlear nucleus. Like the pyramidal (fusiform) cells, a principal neuron of the DCN. Their dendrites, branching sparsely across isofrequency bands, are smooth until they reach the molecular layer, where the tips are spiny. The axons join pyramidal cell axons to form the DAS (dorsal acoustic stria) through which they project to the contralateral inferior colliculus. to the contralateral inferior colliculus.
DendriteLocation Dendrites spread from the cell body in all directions. Dendrites are smooth where they lie in the deep layer but where the dendrites cross the pyramidal (fusiform) cell layer into the molecular layer +, They become spiny. Functionally it has been demonstrated that they receive not only acoustic input in the deep layer but also proprioceptive input through the molecular layer. +
