Anterograde and retrograde tracing methods have been used to analyze the cells of origin and the axonal distribution of the tectopulvinar projection in the squirrel monkey. Our most interesting finding is that tectopulvinar neurons occupy a cytoarchitecturally distinct sublamina of the stratum griseum superficiale (SGS) called the lower SGS (SGSL). The distinction between the SGSL and the upper SGS (SGSU) is further indicated by the findings of others that the SGSL receives different amounts of… CONTINUE READING
