The distribution of the calcium-binding protein calretinin in the thalamus of normal human individuals was studied with immunohistochemistry. Calretinin immunoreactivity was weak in the geniculate bodies and in nuclei of the ventral and posterior groups, moderate in the reticular nucleus and in nuclei of the anterior, medial, and lateral groups, and strong in nuclei of the midline group and anterior intralaminar nuclei. The mediodorsal nucleus was unique among thalamic nuclei because it… CONTINUE READING
