In the salamander Plethodon jordani, the morphology and axonal projections of thalamic (TH) neurons and their responses to electrical optic nerve stimulation were determined by intracellular recording and biocytin labeling under in vitro, whole-brain conditions. Based on their axonal projections, labeled neurons (n = 76) were divided into the following groups: TH1 neurons, with mostly ipsilateral projections to the striatum; TH2 neurons, with ipsilateral or bilateral projections to the medial… CONTINUE READING
