This study describes for the first time the distribution of the calcium-binding protein calretinin (CR) in the anterior thalamic nuclei (ATN) of the guinea pig during development. Brains from animals ranging from 40th embryonic day (E40) to 80th postnatal day (P80) were used in the study. No CR-immunoreactive (CR-ir) perikarya were present among the ATN at E40, but thick bundles of fibers containing CR were crossing the anteromedial nucleus (AM). The first CR-ir neurons appeared at E50 in the… CONTINUE READING
