The tectofugal system dominates vision in most avian species. A key component of this pathway is the projection from the optic tectum onto the nucleus rotundus and the nucleus subpretectalis. Since subpretectalis has inhibitory projections onto rotundus, it constitutes a modulatory tectofugal sidepath to the tectorotundal system. We analyzed the connections and the immunocytochemical pattern of the subpretectalis in pigeons and show that it receives afferents from some tectal celltypes and from… CONTINUE READING
