The lateral geniculate nucleus (LGN) of the thalamus is the main relay station of retinal input to the visual cortex. It plays important roles in perception and cognition, and has close relationships with several eye and brain diseases. The current study showed that high resolution BOLD fMRI at 7T can reliably distinguish eye layers as well as magnocellular and parvocellular layer activities of the human LGN.
