Does early monocular enucleation in a marsupial affect the surviving uncrossed retinofugal pathway?
Monocular enucleations have been done during early stages (postnatal days 3 to 9) of visual system development of Monodelphis domestica, in order to determine whether in this marsupial, as in several eutherian mammals, there are any interactions between the pathways from the two eyes in establishing the uncrossed retinofugal projection. We have examined the distribution and the number of retrogradely labelled ganglion cells that project to the same side of the brain from the surviving eyes sh...Expand abstract
