In Part a of the study, the retinal inputs to the hypothalamus, anterior thalamus and basal forebrain of Syrian hamsters were studied using intraocular injections of horseradish peroxidase conjugated to cholera toxin (CT-HRP). In the hypothalamus, the heaviest retinal input was to the suprachiasmatic nucleus (SCN), however, many labeled fibers coursed through the SCN to reach more caudal, periventricular and lateral sites including the anterior and lateral hypothalamus, the paraventricular… CONTINUE READING
