The superior colliculus is an important node in the visual system that receives inputs from the retina and distributes these visual features to various downstream brain nuclei. It remains unknown how these circuits are wired to enable specific and reliable information processing.

We answer this question by looking at the retinal ganglion cells that are part of the specific circuits with mono-synaptical virus tracing followed by anatomical analysis, electrophysiology and two-photon imaging methods.
