Projections from inferior temporal cortex to prefrontal cortex via the uncinate fascicle in rhesus monkeys.
In five rhesus monkeys (Macaca mulatta) we used anterograde and retrograde tracing techniques to investigate the projection from the inferior temporal cortex (area TE) to the prefrontal cortex as well as the course of the projecting fibers. The results showed that TE projects to both the inferior convexity and orbital surface of prefrontal cortex and that these projections course almost exclusively via the uncinate fascicle. Transection of the uncinate fascicle deprives the prefrontal cortex ...Expand abstract
