The striatum is known to have a compartmental organization in which histochemically defined zones called striosomes form branched 3-dimensional labyrinths embedded within the surrounding matrix. We explored how fiber projections from cortical somatic sensory areas representing cutaneous and deep-receptor inputs are organized in relation to this striatal architecture. Areas SI and 3a were mapped electrophysiologically, and distinguishable anterograde tracers (wheat germ agglutinin-HRP and 35S… CONTINUE READING
