Figure 10

Thalamic input to the preceeding graft (see Fig. 9A) is restricted to the most responsive area. A, biotinylated dextran amine (BDA) injection confined mostly to the LP nucleus (dotted line, lower inset). Strong projections are present in the host cortex either close to the graft (B) or more laterally, in the Oc2L area (C). In contrast, very sparse thalamic fibers innervate the graft (B). The arrow points to a bouton-like terminal structure (see upper inset). cp, cerebral peduncle; Cx, host cortex; DLG, dorsal lateral geniculate nucleus; LP, lateral posterior nucleus; Po, posterior thalamic nucleus; Tr, transplant; VLG, ventral lateral geniculate nucleus; VPM, ventral posteromedian nucleus; w.m., white matter. Roman numbers denote cortical layers. Scale bars, 100 μm.
