Abstract

To clarify the vestibular projections to the centromedian-parafascicular nuclear complex, the Phaseolus vulgaris leucoagglutinin (PHA-L) and horseradish peroxidase conjugated to wheat germ agglutinin (WGA-HRP), tracing studies have been done in rats. The data demonstrated that the lateral parafasicular nucleus received vestibular afferents mainly from the ventral part of medial vestibular nucleus, and the superior and inferior vestibular nuclei, with an ipsilateral predominance. These findings suggest the vestibular influence to the motor loop of the basal ganglia thalamocortical projections.
