Thalamic processing of vibrissal information in the rat. I. Afferent input to the medial ventral posterior and posterior nuclei
Retrograde tracing with true blue (TB) and diamidino yellow (DY) and anterograde tracing with either wheatgerm agglutinin–conjugated horseradish peroxidase (WGA‐HRP) or Phaseolus vulgarisExpand

Intersubnuclear connections within the rat trigeminal brainstem complex.
Prior intracellular recording and labeling experiments have documented local-circuit and projection neurons in the spinal trigeminal (V) nucleus with axons that arborize in more rostral and caudalExpand

Thalamic processing of vibrissal information in the rat: II. Morphological and functional properties of medial ventral posterior nucleus and posterior nucleus neurons
Extracellular recording, intracellular recording, intracellular horseradish peroxidase injection, and receptive field mapping techniques were employed to evaluate the physiological and morphologicalExpand

Patterning of local intracortical projections within the vibrissae representation of rat primary somatosensory cortex
Anterograde and retrograde tracing with biotinylated dextran amine and Phaseolus vulgaris leukoagglutinin was used to assess projection patterns within the vibrissae representation of the rat'sExpand

Serotonin 1B receptors in the developing somatosensory and visual cortices are located on thalamocortical axons.
Serotonin (5-HT)-immunoreactive axons are densely distributed in the primary visual and somatosensory cortices of rats, mice, and hamsters for the first 2 weeks of life, and a recent study from thisExpand

Parvalbumin and calbindin immunocytochemistry reveal functionally distinct cell groups and vibrissa‐related patterns in the trigeminal brainstem complex of the adult rat
Immunocytochemistry for calbindin (CA) and parvalbumin (PA) was combined with retrograde tracing from the thalamus, superior colliculus (SC), and cerebellum to define the ascending projections ofExpand

Reducing contralateral SI activity reveals hindlimb receptive fields in the SI forelimb-stump representation of neonatally amputated rats.
In adult rats that sustained forelimb amputation on the day of birth, >30% of multiunit recording sites in the forelimb-stump representation of primary somatosensory cortex (SI) also respond toExpand

Evidence for prenatal competition among the central arbors of trigeminal primary afferent neurons
Previous studies have shown that damage to vibrissa follicles in newborn rats and mice does not alter the brainstem representations of the remaining vibrissa as demonstrated by staining forExpand
