Visual Abstract
A comparison of the synaptic input to visual areas V1 and V2 from primate pulvinar
Moore B, Li K, Mavity-Hudson JA, Casagrande VA. (2015)

Projections from the thalamus either drive or modulate the flow of information to cortex. Where pulvino-cortical projections fall within this framework is unknown. Based on fluorescent and electron microscopy, we propose that projections to V2 drive while those to V1 modulate cortical activity.
