The mediodorsal (MD) nucleus of the thalamus has long been known to provide the principal source of subcortical input to the primate prefrontal cortex, as well as to other areas of the frontal lobe that are thought to contribute to higher-order cognitive functions. In this study, we used injections of retrograde tracers in the lateral portion of the monkey MD to assess the locations of labeled cells in subcortical structures. Three main patterns were identified in the distribution of… CONTINUE READING
