Retrograde axoplasmic transport of differently colored fluorescent dyes was used to determine the distributions and relative proportions of cells in the ventrobasal complex of the monkey thalamus that project to each of the architectonic fields of the first somatic sensory cortex. Fast Blue was injected into portions of area 3a identified by first recording short latency, multiunit responses to electrical stimulation of Group I afferents in a muscle nerve of the forelimb or hindlimb.
