Thalamus geniculate nucleus (lateral) principal neuronDistal equivalent dendritemGluRCorticogeniculate input (T)Unlike the retinogeniculate input, the corticogeniculate input is received by both ionotropic and metabotropic glutamate receptors (McCormick DA and von Krosigk M, 1992 [guinea pig ]133 , SOBIV p316). A study indicates that synaptic activation of these receptors increases inhibitory activity in relay neurons by increasing output of presynaptic dendrites (Govindaiah A and Cox CL, 2004476 ).
