The dorsal lateral geniculate nucleus of the thalamus (dLGN) projects to several extrastriate areas of the macaque brain. The extent of the dLGN projection to the visual temporal cortex was investigated using retrogradely transported dyes. A population of dLGN neurones was labelled after injections in the inferior temporal cortex (ITC) including the lower… CONTINUE READING
