The synaptic organization in the lateral geniculate nucleus of the monkey has been studied by electron microscopy. The axon terminals in the lateral geniculate nucleus can be identified by the synaptic vesicles that they contain and by the specialized contacts that they make with adjacent neural processes. Two types of axon terminal have been recognized. The first type is relatively large (from 3–20 μ) and contains relatively pale mitochondria, a great many vesicles and, in normal material, a… CONTINUE READING
