Characterization of the Morphological and Synaptic Properties of Terminals in Koniocellular versus Magnocellular/Parvocellular Parallel Pathways in the Lateral Geniculate Nucleus of the Tree Shrew (Tupaia belangeri)

Francesca Sciaccotta
In addition to its main excitatory input coming from the retina, the lateral geniculate nucleus (LGN) of the thalamus receives axons from the superior colliculus (SC). In tree shrews (Tupaia belangeri), these tectogeniculate (TG) projections terminate in the koniocellular laminae 3 and 6, but their precise role in this pathway is unknown. To address the circuitry that underlines the TG input regulation of geniculate relay, I studied the synaptic circuitry in koniocellular laminae and its...
