Distribution of retinogeniculate cells in the tammar wallaby in relation to decussation at the optic chiasm
Partial decussation of the optic nerve in mammals is related to the laterofrontal placement of the eyes. To investigate this relationship in the wallaby (Macropus eugenii), injections of wheat germ agglutinin-conjugated to horseradish peroxidase were made into one dorsal lateral geniculate nucleus to label retinal ganglion cell bodies in both retinas. Contralaterally, labelled ganglion cells were present across the nasotemporal axis, except for the far temporal retina where they were absent or...[Show more]
