The ipRGCs project to the olivary pretectal nuclei, constituting the afferent arm of the PLR [28].
Suppression values of otoacoustic emissions were similar in individuals with and without tinnitus, although the group with this symptom has presented lower results, suggesting a worse performance of the superior olivary complex.
It is generated by synchronous firing of neurons along auditory nerve, cochlear nuclei, superior olivary nucleus, lateral lemniscus, and inferior colliculus.
The intramural olivary migratory stream and the neurogenetic organization of the inferior olive.
showed that the trigeminal nerve also innervates the cochlear nucleus and the superior olivary complex [36].
The neural generator of peak III (which is analogous to peak IV in humans) was not determined by a specific near-field recording, although the researchers' assumption was that this peak had its origin in the superior olivary complex.
Left: Olivary Rounder ([TEXT NOT REPRODUCIBLE IN ASCII]) It is a tool made of bamboo, wood or plastic and with two olivary ends and mainly used to round the holes such as spout and pore.
Recentemente, uma meta-analise de estudos que utilizaram a versao de 62 itens do PSDQ, concluiu que o factor permissivo apresentava sempre niveis baixos de consistencia interna, nos EUA e noutros paises (Olivary, Tabliabue, & Confalonieri, 2013).
Moreover, most of brain regions that are considered responsible for autism are densely innervated by projections of serotoninergic neurons (cerebral cortex, with the prefrontal lobe and the superior temporal gyrus, the brainstem with the dorsal raphe nucleus, upper and lower olivary nuclei, the nucleus of the facial nerve or the limbic system) (2).
Wave III represents neuron activity at the level of auditory pons, and wave IV in the superior olivary complex (SOC).
[82] Wave III is associated with the superior olivary complex and wave V is associated with the inferior colliculus, [82,83] so the differences between groups in these waveforms suggest impairments in these areas.
