CONNECTIONS OF THE PULVINAR

CONNECTIONS OF THE PULVINAR Abstract Connections of the pulvinar are still a matter of doubt. For a long time it has been known that lesions of the parietal and occipitotemporal regions may give rise to degeneration of fibers in the pulvinar. Dejerine1 reported a number of such cases: those described by Courrière, Bras, Jouan, Leudot, Seguillon, Rivaud and others. In these cases a clinical history was available. The extent of the cortical lesions was calculated in each case, and a well illustrated histologic analysis, showing how the pulvinar was affected, was given. The case reported here is one of several which illustrate connections between the occipitotemporal and parietal association areas and the pulvinar. The brains in a number of other cases have been sectioned and studied. They will be reported on later. Some general inferences are drawn from these cases and from other sources.

Abstract

Abstract Connections of the pulvinar are still a matter of doubt. For a long time it has been known that lesions of the parietal and occipitotemporal regions may give rise to degeneration of fibers in the pulvinar. Dejerine1 reported a number of such cases: those described by Courrière, Bras, Jouan, Leudot, Seguillon, Rivaud and others. In these cases a clinical history was available. The extent of the cortical lesions was calculated in each case, and a well illustrated histologic analysis, showing how the pulvinar was affected, was given. The case reported here is one of several which illustrate connections between the occipitotemporal and parietal association areas and the pulvinar. The brains in a number of other cases have been sectioned and studied. They will be reported on later. Some general inferences are drawn from these cases and from other sources.
