The evoked potential is generated in the cochlea, goes through the cochlear nerve, through the cochlear nucleus, superior olivary complex, lateral lemniscus, to the inferior colliculus in the midbrain, on to the medial geniculate body, and finally to the auditory cortex.
There are evidences which suggest that the cortical OFF-potentials in visual cortex are reduced in early glaucoma patients,[11] the ON- and OFF-pathways from the retina to the superior colliculus were disrupted in mice with sustained ocular hypertension,[12] and elevated IOP decreases response sensitivity of inner retinal neurons in experimental glaucoma mice.

Gene expression changes in thalamus and inferior colliculus associated with inflammation, cellular stress, metabolism and structural damage in thiamine deficiency.
Stimulus intensity modifies saccadic reaction time and visual response latency in the superior colliculus.
Consequently it is more prone to modulatory influences of suprasegmental structures, like specifically the superior colliculus, raphe nucleus, and basal ganglia (7,8).
I wave originated from the peripheral portion of eighth cranial nerve adjacent to cochlea, II wave from cochlear nucleus, III wave from superior olivary nucleus, IV wave from lateral lemniscus, and V wave from inferior colliculus.
This project will measure the activity of populations of nerve cells in the two major target nuclei in the brain - the lateral geniculate nucleus, and the superior colliculus - of mice.
Ziad Hafed of the Werner Reichardt Centre for Integrative Neuroscience (CIN) at the University of TE-bingen investigated non-human primates, ascertaining that different parts of the visual field are represented asymmetrically in the superior colliculus, a brain structure central to visual perception and behavior.
Note that [DELTA]2-valproic acid, a metabolite of valproic acid, preferentially accumulates in select areas of the brain: the substantia nigra, superior and inferior colliculus, hippocampus, and medulla.
