Reticular thalamic region in the rabbit: organisation of efferents to the superior colliculus.

Although it is well-established that the reticular thalamic nucleus provides a strong GABAergic input to the dorsal thalamus, the existence of reticular efferents to other subcortical centres is less certain. In this study, we investigate whether the reticular nucleus projects to a major brainstem centre, the superior colliculus. The neuronal tracer… (More)
