Twenty-five taste and 35 mechanoreceptive neurons were recorded from the parvicellular part of the posteromedial ventral nucleus (VPMpc) in rats. Among them, 14 (56%) of the taste and 7 (18.4%) of the mechanoreceptive neurons were antidromically activated from the cortical taste area (CTA) with a latency of 1–4 ms and identified as thalamocortical (TC) relay neurons. No significant differences were evident in the receptive field properties or in the location in the VPMpc between the TC and non… CONTINUE READING
