Hi,
I just want to signal that the thalamic cells that have pacemaker potentials,
the reticular thalamic nuclei cells, do not project to the cortex. THey are
nevertheless considered to be the initiator, via thalamocortical complex, of
cortical oscillations (see works from M.Steriade and also M.Deschenes).
