Among vertebrates, telencephalo-pontine systems exist only in birds and mammals. However, three nuclei in the diencephalon and mesencephalon of teleost fishes have been indicated — analogous to the pons — to represent relay stations between telencephalon and cerebellum. Since two of these nuclei (dorsal preglomerular nucleus, dorsal tegmental nucleus) have only been described in the highly derived, electrosensory mormyrids, we investigated telencephalic connections in two nonelectrosensory… CONTINUE READING
