The first thalamocortical synapses are made in the cortical plate in the developing visual cortex of the wallaby (Macropus eugenii)

Pearce, Amy R; Marotte, Lauren


The time course of development and laminar distribution of thalamocortical synapses in the visual cortex of the marsupial mammal the wallaby (Macropus eugenii) has been studied by electron microscopy from the time of afferent ingrowth to the appearance of layer 4, the main target for thalamic axons. Axons were labeled from the thalamus by a fluorescent carbocyanine dye in fixed tissue or by transneuronal transport of horseradish peroxidase conjugated to wheat germ agglutinin from the eye....[Show more]
