Subset of cortical layer 6b neurons selectively innervates higher order thalamic nuclei in mice

Abstract:

The thalamus receives input from three distinct cortical layers, but input from only two of these have been well characterised. We therefore investigated whether the third input, derived from layer 6b, is more similar to the projections from layer 6a or layer 5. We studied the projections of a restricted population of deep layer 6 cells (“layer 6b cells”) taking advantage of the transgenic mouse Tg(Drd1a-cre)FK164Gsat/Mmucd (Drd1a-Cre), that selectively expresses Cre-recombinase in a subpopul...
