TLDR
Results showed that NC, including lateral reticular formation (LRF), projects to contralateral VPM, the VPM‐VPL border and medial VPL, and a region dorsal to ventroposterior nucleus (VP) proper which contains cells larger than those in VPM yet which stain as darkly as VPL neurons; this latter zone of termination may be homologous with VPLo (Vim) in other species.
Prefrontal projections to the mediodorsal nucleus of the thalamus in the rhesus monkey
TLDR
The thalamic projections from the different architectonic areas of the prefrontal cortex are reassessed by using the technique of autoradiography in the rhesus monkey to show that the prefrontomediodorsal projections are organized according to the architectonic differentiation of therontal cortices.
Relationships of precentral premotor and prefrontal cortex to the mediodorsal and intralaminar nuclei of the monkey thalamus.
The projections of precentral, premotor and prefrontal cortical areas to the mediodorsal and intralaminar thalamic nuclei have been reexamined by means of the anterograde labelling technique in 21

TLDR
Afferent subcortical connections to the medial prefrontal cortex (PFC) in the dog were investigated using the horseradish peroxidase retrograde transport method and the caudal region of the ventromedial prefrontal cortex seems to receive richer projection from "non-specific" thalamic nuclei as well as from the amygdaloid complex.
Organization of the thalamo-cortical connexions to the frontal lobe in the rhesus monkey
TLDR
An alternative view of the organization of the thalamus is provided and it is suggested that this structure contains a matrix of longitudinal cell columns which in some cases extend across specific nuclear borders and may represent the basic thalamic building blocks in respect to theThalamo-cortical connexions.
The influences of medial-diencephalic lesions on hippocampal and cortical function and plasticity
TLDR
This body of work investigated the distal hypofunctionality following lesions of the mammillothalamic tract in rats, a white matter bundle that connects the mammillary bodies to the anterior thalamic nuclei within the medial diencephalon and found no significant changes in the fine dendritic microstructure of the small pyramidal neurones.

Afferent subcortical connections to the lateral prefrontal cortex (orbital gyrus) in the dog brain were investigated using the horseradish peroxidase retrograde transport method. It was shown that:

Limit and organization of the cortical projection from the medial thalamic nucleus in monkey
TLDR
In the course of experiments designed primarily to investigate the effects on behavior of partial frontal ab­ lation, retrograde thalamic degeneration in 40 cerebral hemispheres of Macaca mulatta is analyzed and indicates the to­ pology of thalamo-cortical correspondence.

TLDR
The connections of the mediodorsal nucleus were compared in rats, cats and monkeys and the paralamellar portion received from the cerebellum, superior colliculus and spinal cord and projects to the medial frontal area in rats and area 8 in monkeys.
