The sequences show the right pontine nuclei (Case D46) from ventral, followed by a 360 degree clockwise rotation. Use the "pause" facility of your viewer to allow closer inspection of the reconstructions.
|Dot rendering: 3-D reconstruction of the right pontine nuclei, showing the distribution topography of pontine terminal fields arising in the rat SI whisker barrel field (Case D46). The outer surface of the right pontine nuclei is shown as a transparent surface, blue and red dots show the distribution of fibers labeled with different axonal tracers injected into electrophysiologically defined individual whisker representations in SI. The clusters of blue dots surround the clusters of red dots externally.|
|Solid cluster modeling: 3-D reconstruction of the right pontine nuclei, showing the distribution topography of pontine terminal fields arising in the rat SI whisker barrel field. Same case as shown above. The outer boundaries of labeled clusters are here demonstrated by solid surfaces (red and blue). The labeled clusters arising from the same row of SI barrels are located in dual lamellae that are shifted from internal to external.|
