The directed growth of retinal axons towards surgically transposed tecta in Xenopus; an examination of homing behaviour by retinal ganglion cell axons.

Abstract:

The growth of optic axons towards experimentally rotated tecta has been studied. In stage 24/25 embryos, a piece of the dorsal neural tube, containing the dorsal midbrain rudiment, was rotated through 180 degrees. At later stages of development, the pathways of growing optic axons were investigated by labelling with either horseradish peroxidase or fluorescent dye. It is shown that retinal ganglion cell axons followed well-defined pathways, in spite of the abnormal structure of the brain, and...
