Abstract

Retrograde transport after the injection of the tracer, wheatgerm agglutinin-horseradish peroxidase, into different neural sites revealed a layering of labelled cells in lamina 6 of the striate cortex of the cat. Depending on their destination, efferent cells were clustered at different levels in lamina 6 so that cells projecting to the claustrum congregated in the lower half of the lamina while those projecting to other parts of the visual cortex, in either ipsi- or contralateral hemispheres, were found principally in the upper half and the cells with axons passing to the lateral geniculate nucleus occupied the central expanse (middle three-fifths) of the lamina.
