The relative proportions of synapses made by retinal and extraretinal terminals on interneurons and relay cells in lamina A of the dorsal lateral geniculate nucleus (LGN) of the cat were estimated quantitatively in a sample of 4003 synapses. Processes of interneurons or relay cells were identified by presence or absence of GABA immunoreactivity, respectively, in thin sections treated with post-embedding anti-GABA immunogold. On the basis of ultrastructural features, synaptic terminals were… CONTINUE READING
