Contributions of VLDLR and LRP8 in the establishment of retinogeniculate projections
(BioMed Central, 2013-06-13)
Background: Retinal ganglion cells (RGCs), the output neurons of the retina, project to over 20 distinct brain nuclei, including the lateral geniculate nucleus (LGN), a thalamic region comprised of three functionally ...
LRRTM1 underlies synaptic convergence in visual thalamus
It has long been thought that the mammalian visual system is organized into parallel pathways, with incoming visual signals being parsed in the retina based on feature (e.g. color, contrast and motion) and then transmitted ...
Nuclei-specific differences in nerve terminal distribution, morphology, and development in mouse visual thalamus
Background: Mouse visual thalamus has emerged as a powerful model for understanding the mechanisms underlying neural circuit formation and function. Three distinct nuclei within mouse thalamus receive retinal input, the ...
