Anterograde labelling following focal injections of Phaseolus vulgaris leucoagglutinin was used to identify the threedimensional cortical distribution of thalamocortical (TC) fibers from the ventrolateral nucleus of the thalamus of the cat. The labelled TC fibers were distributed usually in layers I and III of the motor cortex and the terminals in layer III tended to aggregate into patches about 1-1.5 mm wide in a mediolateral direction. These patches were arranged in longitudinal strips about 2-5 mm long in a rostrocaudal direction and were separated by gaps of terminal free area.
