Thalamus reticular nucleus GABA cellSomaGlutamateAxon collateral terminals of thalamocortical relay neuronsAmplitudes of excitatory postsynaptic conductances (EPSCs) evoked in RTN neurons by minimal stimulation of corticothalamic fibers were 2.4 times larger than in relay neurons, and quantal size of RTN EPSCs was 2.6 times greater. GluR4-receptor subunits labeled at corticothalamic synapses on RTN neurons outnumbered those on relay cells by 3.7 times (Golshani P et al, 20011 ).
