Afferent connections of the laterodorsal thalamic nucleus in the rat

Neurosci Lett. 1979 Nov;15(1):61-4. doi: 10.1016/0304-3940(79)91530-1.

Abstract

The laterodorsal thalamic afferent connections have been studied by means of the retrograde transport of horseradish peroxidase (HRP). The following new sources of projections to the laterodorsal thalamic nucleus (LD) were observed: the zona incerta, the lateral dorsal tegmental nucleus (bilaterally), the lateral hypothalamus and the precentral agranular cortex.
