The projections from the parvocelluar layers lateral geniculate nucleus (LGN P) are capable of driving to the primary visual cortex (V1). These connections have large presynaptic swellings (boutons) that express vesicular glutamate transporter 2 (Vglut2) and parvalbumnin (PV). We examined the possible driving projections to V2, namely, those from V1 and pulvinar. Our findings indicate that, among the possible driving projections to V2, the pulvinar projection is more similar to LGN P projections and hence more likely to drive V2.
