zonal layer of the superior colliculus
Acronym: SCz
The term zonal layer of the superior colliculus refers to the outermost of seven layers of the superior colliculus as identified by internal structure; it is composed largely of neuronal fibers ( 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 of the sensory superior colliculus are the superficial gray layer of the superior colliculus and the superficial white layer of the superior colliculus ( Swanson-2004 ). It is present in primates and rodents.
