CC layers interconnections according to TBT?

Can we get the full list of layers and their connectivity according to TBT ?

I have those extracted from somewhere :

L2,L3a,L3b,L4,L5tt, L5cc,L5ccns, L6a,L6b,L6ip,L6mp,L6bp

Cotex,Thalamus ==> Layer 4 (10%)
L6a ==> L4 (50%)
L4  ==> L3a
L3a ==> L5st
L5tt ==> L6b
L3a ==> Cortex
L5tt ==> Thalamus, Motor cortex

    L3b => L5cc
    L5cc => L5tt
    L5tt => Th
    L5cc <=> L6b

and this from a video :

Thalamus => L6
L4 => L2/3
L2/3 => L5, Cortex
L5 => BG & Ctx
L6 => Th

Sorry to be so pessimistic but without a full theory of how the neocortex works this approach is in my mind doomed to fail. There are a lot of classifications out there and none / all of them are correct.

To provide an example:
What do you mean with L6b cells, as you classified them? Are those L6CT cells, L6CC cells? or L6CT cells of the lower half and a half of L6CC cells. Is this classification solely by layer height or connectivity?

I have spent a long time reading neuroscience papers and you cant get information which is as simple as you would like it. Only when a theory and a biological observation agree that there are two sublayers and we have a way of interpretation it makes sense in my mind to start a specific classification scheme.

  • Why do you classify neurons at all?

Only when you have a goal for your model, it makes sense to start a classification.

  • What do you want your model to do?
  • Do you need orientation and location in L6 and because of that it makes sense to have two sub-layers?

i was asking about classification according to the CURRENT version of TBT !
