Cortical cells projecting to the dorsal column nuclei of Rhesus monkeys

Corticals cells projecting to the dorsal column nuclei (DCN) of Rhesus monkeys have been identified after unilateral or bilateral injection of horseradish peroxidase (HRP) into the dorsal medulla. HRP-positive neurons identifiable as the source of cortico-DCN projections were pyramidal cells in layer V whose largest diameters ranged from 12–31 μm. Cortico… CONTINUE READING
