To study the projection from the pretectum to the dorsal lateral geniculate nucleus (LGNd) in the cat, we used anterograde and retrograde transport of wheat germ agglutinin-horseradish peroxidase (WGA-HRP). Special attention was directed to the retinotopic maps of the pretectum and LGNd. Multiple restricted injections were made into different parts of the pretectum or LGNd. The pretectogeniculate pathway terminates mostly in the medial interlaminar nucleus (MIN) and layers A and A1, and to some… CONTINUE READING
