Abstract

Embryonic cerebral cortex transplanted to the occipito-parietal region of newborn rats makes connections with the host brain. Retrograde labeling studies after injection of HRP into transplants showed input from the contralateral cortex and ipsilateral thalamus of the host. Transplant projections to the host thalamus and striatum have also been identified.
