Comments "Ngb immunofluorescence was also seen (but not quantified) in neuronal cell bodies and fibers within the descending auditory system including auditory cortex, lateral geniculate body, inferior colliculus, and lemniscal nuclei. It was also found in the cochlear nucleus (CN). In sections of the anteroventral CN (AVCN Fig. 2e, f), Ngb-immunoreactive neuronal perikarya of approximately 18–25 µm soma diameter with one to three apparent processes were observed. According to Pocsai and co-workers [ref 66 PMID 17259023], these cells most probably are bushy, pyramidal, and small cells. In addition, Ngbimmunoreactive axons were seen within the cochlear nerve (Fig. 2g)."
