Development of Thalamocortical Connections

Front Cover
Springer, 1998 - Science - 262 pages
Development of Thalamocortical Connections addresses the current debate on the areal specialization of the cerebral cortex, with a detailed examination of the interactions between the developing thalamus and cerebral cortex. This book discusses recent in vivo and in vitro approaches as well as how they reveal possible guiding mechanisms involved in the deployment of the thalamocortical fibers. The earliest interactions between the new thalamic fibers and the developing cortical circuitry are also discussed. Adding to this discussion are new views on the possible evolutionary origin of the developmental algorithms employed during thalamocortical development.
