1. The projections from the superior temporal sulcus (STS) visual area to pontine nuclei were studied in the macaque monkey by the autoradiographic tracing method. Microinjections of a mixture of L-[5-3H] proline and L-[4,5-3H] leucine were carried out in the posterior band and the floor of the caudal half of the STS. Survival time was always 7 days. 2. The STS visual area projects to the dorsolateral part of ipsilateral pontine nuclei. Terminal projections are distributed in patches in the… CONTINUE READING
