The corona radiata containing all geniculo-cortical and cortico-geniculate fibers was transected in adult cats. One year after the operation synaptic architecture of laminae A and A1 of the decorticated LGN was investigated utilizing electron-microscopy and Golgi-EM. It was found that synaptic glomeruli became embedded in heavily gliotic neuropile, which contained the dendrites of surviving relay cells in addition to retinal axons and interneuronal processes. In contrast to the intact LGN… CONTINUE READING
