The relationship between pyramidal cell morphology and efferent target was investigated in layer 6 of cat primary visual cortex (area 17). Layer 6 has 2 projections, one to the lateral geniculate nucleus (LGN) and another to the visual claustrum. The cells of origin of each projection were identified by retrograde transport of fluorescent latex microspheres… CONTINUE READING
