Recent anatomical tracing methods have revealed new principles underlying the organization of corticothalamic connections in the mammalian nervous system. These data demonstrated the distribution of two types of synaptic contacts in the corticothalamic projection: small (<1 microm) and giant (2-10 microm) axon terminals. We compare the organization of corticothalamic projections in the auditory, somatosensory, visual, and motor systems of a variety of mammalian species, including the monkey. In… CONTINUE READING
