Neuronal activity–dependent processes and critical periods have an essential role in many steps that refine the patterns of connections in the CNS; these are addressed further below. The projection neurons in the LGN send axons anteriorly into the telencephalon, where they traverse the striatum in the internal capsule and enter their target: the cerebral neocortex. The thalamocortical fibers enter the cortex while neurogenesis is still actively occurring and grow into a layer called the intermediate zone that is interposed between the proliferative (VZ and SVZ) and mantle (cortical plate) zones (Fig.

Although one usually thinks of serotonin as the end point of tryptophan pathways in the brain, there are two important exceptions to this rule. In the pineal gland serotonin is metabolized by serotonin-N-acetyltransferase to yield N-acetylserotonin, to which a methyl group is then added to form the hormone melatonin. Throughout the brain there is also a kynurenic acid shunt from tryptophan metabolism that results in the formation of several compounds, including quinolinic acid and kynurenic acid.
