Definition Bipolar neuron in dorsal cochlear nucleus, Bipolar neuron in dorsal cochlear nucleus, whose cell bodies form a band in the pyramidal cell layer. Characterized by a spiny apical dendritic tree in the molecular layer and a smooth basal dendritic tree in the deep layer. The apical dendrites have many branches which are contacted by parallel fibers from granule cells, whereas the basal dendrites have few branches and receive inputs from the auditory nerve. nd receive inputs from the auditory nerve.

DendriteThickness Rat: apical 2-5 um; basal 2-6 um  +
