Pyramidal neurons in layer VI of striate cortex are the source of descending projections to the lateral geniculate nucleus (LGN) as well as a major source of axon terminals in the layers of striate cortex that receive LGN projections. This study examines how the connections of layer VI neurons are arranged with respect to the functionally distinct classes of neurons that compose their cortical and subcortical targets. By placing injections of biocytin into layer VI of tree shrew striate cortex… CONTINUE READING
