Abstract

Injections of horseradish peroxidase into the lateral posterior nucleus (LP) of the rat thalamus resulted in retrograde labeling of neurons in the superior colliculus (SC). Approximately 80% of the labeled cells occurred in the stratum opticum and 20% in the stratum griseum superficiale. The system of projections is organized such that medial parts of SC project to dorsal LP and lateral parts of SC project to ventral LP.
