The axons on the higher-order thalamus, which extend into the cortex, were highlighted with a (red) fluorescent protein in order to display the target areas in the cortex (red stripes in the top right of the photo). Only a small section of the brain is shown, and it is clear that a large number of cortical areas are affected.
