The pretectal complex of the cat cells of origin of projections to the pulvinar nucleus






Brain Research 397(2): 389-394

The pretectal complex of the cat cells of origin of projections to the pulvinar nucleus

The pretectal projection to the pulvinar nucleus in the cat was examined using the retrograde transport of wheat germ agglutinin-horseradish peroxidase. These data show that both visual and non-visual areas of the pretectal complex contribute to the projection.

The main result was finding two different patterns of terminations in the pulvinar nucleus...
