Abstract

The terminals of axons projecting to the olivary pretectal nucleus have been identified by electron microscopy following injections of horseradish peroxidase into the superior colliculus of adult albino rats. The labelled terminals were equated with RD-terminals described in previous studies of this nucleus. They were 0.3-1.3 micron in diameter and contained round synaptic vesicles. Most also contained small dark mitochondria. They established Gray type 1 synaptic contacts with the dendrites of presumptive projection cells. Most terminated within non-glomerular neuropil, chiefly in the peripheral 'shell' of the nucleus; a few terminated in regions of glomerular neuropil.
