I would be interested in a formal definition for this term, or at least a paper which describes this notion explicitly (instead of just using the term). Many papers seem to use it, but I haven't managed to find any explicit description of the term.

  • $\begingroup$ An "axon terminal field" is just where axons terminate (typically a group of them, like those from one nucleus). What sort of formal definition are you looking for beyond that, and why? If you're looking for something more quantitative, then you probably want something different, like bouton density. $\endgroup$
