Abundant anatomical and physiological evidence supports the presence of at least three distinct types of principal or relay neurons in the dorsal lateral geniculate nucleus (dLGN), the brain region that conveys visual information from the mammalian retina to the primary visual cortex. This data set provides detailed transcriptional profiles of cells from this area, available for download. Cells derived from this area were compared across three species (human, macaque, and mouse) to assess cross-species correspondence based on transcriptional profiles.
