The retinal terminals of the medial interlaminar nucleus (MIN) and ventral lateral geniculate nucleus ( VLG ) have been examined quantitatively to determine if there are morphological differences in their synaptic ultrastructure which reflect their distinctive physiologies . The cross-sectional area and density (number per unit area) of synaptic contact… CONTINUE READING
