Abstract

Encoding acoustic information requires preservation of the timing of electrical signals through multiple levels and branches of the auditory pathways. Large nerve terminals with very specific refinements in their pre- and postsynaptic properties subserve this purpose. Some of these properties are also found in cells, which detect the coincidence of multiple synaptic inputs. In this chapter we describe the key elements of these synapses.
