  • Each column represents the data from one brain. Note that the presence of miswired cells in LD in ephrin-A5 −/− animals (cases A–C and E–I) after implantation of the tracer in sensorimotor cortex. AV, Anteroventral nucleus; AM, anteromedial nucleus; AD, anterodorsal nucleus; MD, mediodorsal nucleus of the thalamus.
