Different rates of axonal degeneration in the crossed and uncrossed retinofugal pathways of Monodelphis domestica.

Abstract:

The uncrossed retinofugal fibres in the marsupial Monodelphis domestica form a separate bundle as they pass through the optic chiasm. The uncrossed fibres segregate from the crossed fibres a short distance before they reach the chiasm, gathering as an essentially exclusive bundle in the ventral part of the optic nerve. This bundle then passes laterally through the optic chiasm and into the optic tract. The distinctive position of the uncrossed fibres has allowed us to recognise that, surprisi...
