Unveiling the diversity of thalamocortical neuron subtypes.

Abstract

Our current understanding of thalamocortical (TC) circuits is largely based on studies investigating so-called 'specific' thalamic nuclei, which receive and transmit sensory-triggered input to specific cortical target areas. TC neurons in these nuclei have a striking point-to-point topography and a stereotyped laminar pattern of termination in the cortex… (More)
