The axonal projections from the centre médian (CM)/parafascicular (Pf) thalamic complex in squirrel monkeys were studied after microiontophoretic injections of biotinylated dextran amine under electrophysiological guidance. A total of 29 axons connected to their parent cell body were entirely reconstructed from serial sections with a camera lucida. Our investigation shows that the CM and Pf nuclei in primates comprise three types of projection neurons: (1) neurons that innervate densely and… Expand
Single‐axon tracing study of corticostriatal projections arising from primary motor cortex in primates
TLDR
These findings reveal that, in contrast to current beliefs, the primate motor corticostriatal system is not exclusively formed by axons dedicated solely to the striatum, but also comprises collaterals from long‐range corticofugal axons, which can provide to the Striatum a copy of the neural information that is being conveyed to the brainstem and/or spinal cord. Expand
Single-axon tracing of the corticosubthalamic hyperdirect pathway in primates
TLDR
Single-axon reconstructions demonstrate that the so-called hyperdirect pathway derives essentially from collaterals of long-ranged corticofugal axons that are rarely exclusively devoted to the STN, as they also innervate the red nucleus and/or the zona incerta. Expand
Quantitative Analyses of the Projection of Individual Neurons from the Midline Thalamic Nuclei to the Striosome and Matrix Compartments of the Rat Striatum
TLDR
It is demonstrated that the functional properties of striatal compartments are influenced by both their cortical and thalamic afferents presumably with a different time latency and support selective dynamics for the striosome and matrix compartments. Expand
Striatal projections of the vagal‐responsive region of the thalamic parafascicular nucleus in macaque monkeys
  • S. Ito, A. Craig
  • Biology, Medicine

  • 2008
TLDR
The findings suggest the broad involvement of homeostatic afferent activity in striatal function and perhaps a role for the striatum in autonomic function. Expand
Novel and Distinct Operational Principles of Intralaminar Thalamic Neurons and Their Striatal Projections
TLDR
The fundamental properties of CL and Pf neurons differ, and they provide different temporally patterned inputs to distinct striatal targets, which likely underpins the transmission of specific and discrete information from intralaminar thalamic nuclei to striatal and cortical targets. Expand
Distinct Cortical-Thalamic-Striatal Circuits through the Parafascicular Nucleus
The thalamic parafascicular nucleus (PF), an excitatory input to the basal ganglia, is targeted with deep-brain stimulation to alleviate a range of neuropsychiatric symptoms. Furthermore, PF lesionsExpand

The thalamic parafascicular nucleus (PF), an excitatory input to the basal ganglia, is targeted with deep-brain-stimulation to alleviate a range of neuropsychiatric symptoms. Furthermore, PF lesionsExpand
The thalamostriatal systems: Anatomical and functional organization in normal and parkinsonian states
TLDR
The thalamostriatal system is not a unique entity, but consists of multiple neural systems that originate from a wide variety of thalamic nuclei and terminate in functionally segregated striatal territories and the possibility that CM/Pf may be a potential surgical target for movement disorders, most particularly Tourette syndrome and Parkinson's disease. Expand
Chemical anatomy of pallidal afferents in primates
TLDR
This review summarizes the recent findings on the distribution, quantitative and ultrastructural aspects of pallidal 5-HT, ACh and DA innervations and hypothesizes that a fragile equilibrium between forebrain and brainstem pallidal afferents plays a key role in the functional organization of the primate basal ganglia.

TLDR
It is demonstrated that Ten‐m3 plays a key role in directing the formation of thalamostriatal circuitry, the first molecular candidate reported to regulate connectivity within this pathway. Expand

Two types of projection neurons in the internal pallidum of primates: Single‐axon tracing and three‐dimensional reconstruction
TLDR
The axonal projections of the internal pallidum in cynomolgus monkeys were studied by labeling small pools of neurons with biotinylated dextran amine to reveal that GPi neurons of type I act through a widely distributed axonal network upon thalamic and brainstem premotor neurons, whereas type II neurons act in a much more focused manner upon lateral habenular neurons. Expand
Axonal branching pattern of neurons of the subthalamic nucleus in primates
TLDR
The results reveal that, in contrast to current beliefs, the primate STN is not a monolithic entity, which harbors several subtypes of projection neurons, each endowed with a highly patterned set of collaterals. Expand
Single-axon tracing study of neurons of the external segment of the globus pallidus in primate.
TLDR
The results suggest that the GPe is an important integrative locus in primate basal ganglia that allows single GPe neurons to exert a multifarious effect not only on the STN, which is the claimed GPe target, but also on the two major output structures of the basal Ganglia, the SNr and the GPi.

TLDR
It is proposed on the basis of morphological, histochemical and hodological criteria that the caudal part of the posterior thalamic group in the rat is homologous to the suprageniculate‐limitans nuclei of cats and primates. Expand

The data indicate that basal ganglia and related thalamic nuclei form a widely distributed neuronal network, whose elements are endowed with a highly patterned set of axon collaterals. Expand
The Nigrostriatal Pathway in the Rat: A Single-Axon Study of the Relationship between Dorsal and Ventral Tier Nigral Neurons and the Striosome/Matrix Striatal Compartments
TLDR
The findings reveal that the nigrostriatal pathway is composed of several neuronal subsystems, each endowed with a widely distributed axonal arborization that allows them to exert a multifaceted influence on striatal and/or extrastriatal structures. Expand
The centre me´dian and parafascicular thalamic nuclei project respectively to the sensorimotor and associative-limbic striatal territories in the squirrel monkey

The results suggest that CM is more specifically involved in sensorimotor and Pf in associative and limbic aspects of basal ganglia function in primates. Expand
Organization of thalamostriatal terminals from the ventral motor nuclei in the macaque

Results suggest that functionally distinct VA/VL projections may also converge in dorsal striatal areas, and raise the possibility thatVA/VL thalamostriatal projections neurons have divergent connectional features. Expand
Some aspects of the organization of the thalamic reticular complex
  • E. G. Jones

TLDR
Because of the wide extent of the dendritic fields of the reticular cells and the degree of overlap between the sectors of the complex subtended by adjacent dorsal thalamic nuclei and adjacent cortical areas, it is likely that thereticular complex samples thalamo‐cortical and cortico‐thalamic activity in a somewhat unspecific manner.
