The neurons in the nuclei of the dorsal division of the medial geniculate body were studied with the rapid Golgi method in kittens and young adult cats. The dorsal nuclei contain two principal cell types: a large stellate neuron with radiate dendrites and a bushy neuron with tufted dendrites, each with extensive dendritic fields. Two sizes of cells with locally arborizing axons (local circuit neurons) were found. The small and commonly observed one is stellate in shape, has a limited dendritic… CONTINUE READING
