The retinal origin of uncrossed optic nerve fibres in rats and their role in visual discrimination.

Abstract:

An attempt was made to sever the optic chiasma in the mid-sagittal plane in 12 rats. This was successful in 8 animals. Provided there was no additional substantial damage to the uncrossed optic fibres the rats were able to relearn an intensity discrimination and to learn or relearn an orientation discrimination, although optokinetic following was abolished.
