superficial white layer of the superior colliculus
Acronym: scsw
The term superficial white layer of the superior colliculus refers to the third outermost layer of the seven-layered superior colliculus. It is located between the superficial gray layer of the superior colliculus and the middle gray layer of the superior colliculus ( Carpenter-1983 ). In the functional CNS model it is one of three layers that constitute the sensory superior colliculus of the subcortical visual system (see Models Where It Appears below). The other layers are the zonal layer of the superior colliculus and the superficial gray layer of the superior colliculus ( Swanson-2004 ). It is present in primates and rodents.
