Striatal and cortical projections arising from the central lateral thalamic nucleus were studied in rats by tracing the axons of small pools of neurons labeled anterogradely with biocytin. Cells of the central lateral nucleus have a morphology that conforms to the classic descriptions of the bushy cells which represent the main neuronal type of most thalamic nuclei. They display many short radiating dendrites studded with sessile spines, protrusions and grapelike appendages. The total extent of… CONTINUE READING
