Tectal Ganglion Cells

We propose that dense arborizations of Ipc axons may be directed to the distal dendritic bottlebrushes of motion detecting Tectal Ganglion Cells (TGCs).  

In the middle third of the optic layer (in layers 4-5), thin dendritic terminal sections of Tectal Ganglion Cells (according to Ramòn y Cajal) of layer 13 terminate into bunches. Phaseolus vulgaris lectin immunotracer corroborates these dendritic endings (further: dendritic terminals) of Tectal Ganglion Cells.
