Light and electron microscopic analysis of synaptic input from cortical area 17 to the lateral posterior nucleus in cats


The morphology and synaptic organization of the corticothalamic (CT) fibres from area 17 were studied in the lateral posterior nucleus (LP) of the thalamus in cats. Injection of the anterograde tracer Phaseolus vulgaris leucoagglutinin (PHAL) into primary visual cortex labelled a band of CT fibres in the LP with terminal field confined to its lateral… (More)
