The organization of five projections from the retinorecipient and non‐retinorecipient layers of the superior colliculus (SC) and nuclei of the pre‐tectum to the lateral pulvinar, medial pulvinar, and dorsal lateral geniculate nucleus (DLG) of the thalamus in the macaque monkey were established by using both anterograde autoradiographic and retrograde horseradish perox‐idase tracing techniques. Some projections from these midbrain regions to the inferior pulvinar are also described as are… 
Projections of the nucleus of the optic tract to the nucleus reticularis tegmenti pontis and prepositus hypoglossi nucleus in the pigmented rat as demonstrated by anterograde and retrograde transport methods.
TLDR
The present studies suggest that one such fiber system is the NOT-ph bundle, and concludes that the critical pathway for OKN passes in relation to, but is not significantly relayed by, the neurons of the NRTP or adjacent pontine tegmentum.
Efferent pathways of the nucleus of the optic tract in monkey and their role in eye movements
TLDR
The NOT could generate optokinetic nystagmus through projections to the AON, the ppH, and the precerebellar nuclei, and any hypothesis on the function of NOT must take into account its connectivity to all of these visuomotor structures.
Histochemical and architectonic differentiation of zones of pretectal and collicular inputs to the pulvinar and dorsal lateral geniculate nuclei in the macaque
TLDR
The results of this experiment imply that there are several anatomically and histochemically distinct zones related to extre ageniculate pathways located within classically defined thalamic boundaries.
The pretectal complex of the monkey: A reinvestigation of the morphology and retinal terminations
TLDR
The cytoarchitecture of the Pretectal complex of the squirrel monkey was examined in Nissl‐ and myelin‐stained sections in the coronal, horizontal, and sagittal plane and the nomenclature used to designate the pretectal nuclei in other species can now be applied to the Squirrel monkey.
New view of the organization of the pulvinar nucleus in Tupaia as revealed by tectopulvinar and pulvinar‐cortical projections
TLDR
It is argued that the target of the diffuse path is in a position to relate limbic and visual impulses and relay the product of such integration to the other visual areas, striate as well as extrastriate cortex.
Pretectal connections in turtles with special reference to the visual thalamic centers: A hodological and γ‐aminobutyric acid‐immunohistochemical study
TLDR
Comparison of these findings with previous work on other species reveals striking similarities between the pretectorotundal pathway in turtles and birds and in the pretectogeniculate pathway in Turtles, birds, and mammals.
An investigation of collateral projections of the dorsal lateral geniculate nucleus and other subcortical structures to cortical areas V1 and V4 in the macaque monkey: A double label retrograde tracer study
TLDR
It was found that cells projecting to V4, which reside in or near the tectorecipient interlaminar zones of the DLG, do not project to V1 and thus represent a separate population of cells, and the organization of the macaque geniculo-prestriate projection seems quite different from that of carnivores.
Do superior colliculus projection zones in the inferior pulvinar project to MT in primates?
TLDR
The results indicate that the medial nucleus of the inferior pulvinar, the major projection zone to the MT, does not receive a significant input from the superior colliculus.
Chemoarchitectonic subdivisions of the visual pulvinar in monkeys and their connectional relations with the middle temporal and rostral dorsolateral visual areas, MT and DLr
TLDR
Staining patterns for calbindin, parvalbumin, and cytochrome oxidase in the pulvinar of rhesus monkeys closely resemble those shown in squirrel monkey inferior pulvinars, suggesting that a common organization exists in all primates.

Thalamic projections of the superior colliculus in the rhesus monkey, Macaca mulatta. A light and electron microscopic study
TLDR
The experimental electron microscopic study has shown that many fibers from the superior colliculus terminate as RL profiles, undergoing direct dense degeneration, in both the inferior pulvinar and the paracentral nucleus.
The efferent connections of the nucleus of the optic tract and the superior colliculus in the rabbit
TLDR
3H‐leucine injections were made in tectal and pretectal areas in the rabbit, and labeled fibers were distributed bilaterally to the superior colliculus, the dorsal part of the medial geniculate nucleus, and the pulvinar nucleus.
The afferent and efferent organization of the lateral geniculo‐prestriate pathways in the macaque monkey
TLDR
Intraocular injections of radioactive precursors demonstrated transsynaptic transport to a number of structures except prestriate cortex and one conclusion is that the DLG‐prestriate projection could be organized like pulvino‐pRestriate systems which receive their inputs from the midbrain and cortex.
