The zebra finch song system. Diagram of major brain areas collapsed across parasagittal planes to show the approximate locations and connections of the song control nuclei (not all connections are shown). The direct motor pathway (DMP; black arrows and nuclei) encompasses the projection from HVC to RA and from RA to vocal-motor nucleus nXIIts, the output of which controls the syrinx. The anterior forebrain pathway (AFP; white arrows and nuclei) encompasses the projection from HVC to Area X, from Area X to DLM, from DLM to LMAN, from LMAN back to Area X, and from LMAN to RA. Dotted boxes indicate approximate positions of the in situ photomicrographs presented in Figs. 7 8, 9, 10, 11. See text for anatomical abbreviations
