The development of topography in the hamster geniculo-cortical projection.

Abstract:

Precise point-to-point connectivity is the basis of ordered maps of the visual field. The immaturity of the newborn hamster's visual system has allowed us to examine emerging topography in the geniculo-cortical projection well before thalamic axons have reached their cortical target, layer IV. Using anterograde transneuronal labeling with wheat germ agglutinin conjugated to horseradish peroxidase (WGA-HRP), we visualized the ingrowth of the whole population of geniculate fibers in the neonata...
