The SC is involved in a lot of things.

Different regions project to different lamina of the SC.

An SC output neuron which projects to some structure outside the SC may sample input from SC lamina according to the requirements of the target of its projections.

There are monosynaptic connections from the retina to neurons both in the superficial and deeper layers of the SC.
