The neurophysiology and neuroanatomy of the thalamus have been extensively studied in a variety of species and sensory systems. The identity of the neurotransmitter(s) which mediate the excitation from ascending sensory afferents on to thalamic relay neurons is, however, still unclear, although it appears to be a substance which is a ligand for excitatory amino acid receptors, as the responses of ventrobasal thalamus neurons to natural stimulation of somatosensory afferents arising from the… CONTINUE READING
