The cortical layers are connected both horizontally and vertically, with horizontally (laterally) aligned cells being _________, linking together cells.
What are the 2 nuclei that DIRECTLY provide input to the Association Cortices and DO NOT HAVE INVOLVEMENT WITH THE MOTOR/PRE-MOTOR CORTICES?
Of the two nuclei that directly project to the Association Cortices, the Pulvinar nuclei projects directly to the _______ association cortices.
