Definition Principal cells of the ventral cochlear nu Principal cells of the ventral cochlear nucleus are named for having the axon exit the cochlear nucleus through the Trapezoid body. A band of dendrites in an isofrequency lamina receives input from a small number of auditory nerve fibers. Sharp tuning is enhanced by sideband inhibition. The population of T stellate cells encodes the spectra of sounds. llate cells encodes the spectra of sounds.
