superficial gray layer of the superior colliculus
Acronym: SCsg
The term superficial gray layer of the superior colliculus refers to the outermost gray layer of the seven-layered superior colliculus. It is located just deep to the ourtermost zonal 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 white layer of the superior colliculus ( Swanson-2004 ). It is present in primates and rodents.
