In this study we demonstrate at the ultrastructural level that both the dorsal lateral geniculate nucleus (dLGN), the visual relay of the thalamus, and the perigeniculate nucleus (PGN), the visual segment of the thalamic reticular nucleus (TRN), are densely innervated by fibres with Choline-Acetyl-Transferase (ChAT) like immuno-reactivity. These axons make synaptic contacts with interneurones considered to be inhibitory, both in the PGN and within the synaptic glomeruli of the dLGN. In addition… CONTINUE READING
