      Gene markers are useful tools to identify area borders and the cell types within complex neuronal circuits. Here we show by in situ hybridization combined with tracer injections that cholecystokin (cck) and Purkinje cell protein 4 (pcp4) mRNA expressions represent corticocortical and corticothalamic projections, respectively, in layer 6 of the rat cortex. These two probes reveal conspicuous area-specific sublamina structure of the deep layers. From this, we conclude that the extrinsic connectivity of layer 6 is also area-specific.

      How are bipolar cells connected to specific photoreceptors in the retina? The photoreceptor connectivity of 321 bipolar cells in the adult zebrafish retina was determined. Nine major connectivity subtypes were identified — G, GBUV, RG, RGB, RGBUV, RGRod, RGBRod, RGBUVRod, and RRod bipolar cells. Their axonal stratification patterns, dendritic tree morphologies and size, and soma depth and size were also determined. This is the first comprehensive study of bipolar cell–photoreceptor connectivity in any retina.
