Laminar dendrite distributions reflect subcortical targets of PTs. a 3D reconstruction of in vivo labeled PTs with identified subcortical target (n = 5 for POm/SC/Pons-Ps, n = 4 for Sp5C-Ps). PTs were registered to a geometrical reference frame of rat vS1 with ~50 µm precision. b Principal components (PCs) of 21 dendritic features (Supplementary Table 1) that discriminate between L5st (ITs) and L5tt PNs (PTs). c Distribution of dendrites along the vertical cortex axis, averaged across the PTs shown in a. The circles represent the median soma depths of each group. d Dendritic path length per PT is significantly correlated to the respective number of branch points. Markers with two colors represent dual-Ps (also applies to Figs. 4 and 5 and Supplementary Fig. 2). e Recording depth vs. ongoing spike rate of PTs. Black markers represent PTs with unidentified targets (also applies to Fig. 5)
