Abstract / Bemerkung
Anatomical data suggest that visual information from the thalamofugal pathway contributes to visual processing in the tectofugal pathway. We addressed the question of the functionality of anatomically described connections to the visual system of a laterally eyed bird, the zebra finch. The study shows the contribution of visual wulst efferents to visual processing in the ectostriatum by recordings of visually evoked slow field potentials. Suppression of visual wulst activity resulted in a selective reduction of distinct potential components in contralaterally evoked slow field potentials. A clear reduction was observed in the maximum amplitude of short latency components in the negative wave. Long latency components of the negative wave and the entire positive wave of the contralaterally flash evoked potentials were almost abolished. Ipsilateral visual evoked potentials (VEPs) were not significantly affected. Cooling and spreading depression of the optic tectum resulted in a uniform amplitude reduction of the negative wave. The positive wave was almost abolished. Ipsilateral VEPs disappeared completely during suppression of optic tectum activity. The results showed that the visual wulst has a significant, most likely facilitatory, influence on the processing of contralateral visual information in the ectostriatum. Ipsilateral stimulus processing was partly independent from visual wulst activity. A model for thalamo- and tectofugal connectivity in the ectostriatum is suggested.
