Injection of the fluorescent tracers 10% Evans blue (EB) and 4% fluoro-gold (FG) into the right and the left dorsal lateral geniculate nucleus, respectively, of albino rats at different stages of development demonstrated the presence of double-labeled retinal ganglion cells that projected bilaterally into both the dorsal lateral geniculate nuclei (dLGN).(More)
We studied the neuronal populations that project their axons to the cingulate cortex in albino rats using the retrograde fluorescent dye of 4% Fluoro-Gold injected into the anterior, middle and posterior portions of the cingulate cortex. The result showed that the following ipsilateral structures are sending fibers to these three portions: the prefrontal(More)
There has been an abundance of research on the connections of the mammillary bodies but the projections from the lateral mammillary nucleus to the anterodorsal thalamic nucleus has remained a gray area due to a dearth of material which directly addresses the details of this pathway. This study seeks to further define the nature of this particular nerve(More)
Retinal ganglion cells with branches to the ipsilateral ventral lateral geniculate nucleus (vLGN) and superior colliculus (SC) were studied by retrograde fluorescent double-labeling. Double-labeled cells were found in the ventral temporal crescent of the retina, with a few ipsilaterally projecting single-labeled cells scattered in this area. Single-labeled(More)
Injecting Fluoro-Gold (FG) and Evans-Blue (EB) into the right dLGN and SC in the adult albino rat, ipsilaterally projecting double-labeled retinal ganglion cells were mainly seen in the ventrotemporal crescent. They were mainly large sized cells. The ipsilaterally projecting double-labeled cells tended to have larger somata than the single- and(More)
Bifurcating projections of retinal ganglion cells to the primary visual targets were studied in the cat using a retrograde fluorescent double-labeling technique with Fluoro-Gold (FG) and Evans Blue (EB) as the tracers. Following injections of FG and EB into the left and right lateral geniculate nuclei (LGN), or into the left and right superior colliculi(More)
By injecting Fluoro-Gold and Evans-Blue into the right and left superior colliculi of the normal adult albino rats, bilaterally projecting retinal ganglion cells were labeled in the ventrotemporal crescent accounting for 37.9% of all the labeled cells, whereas in 0- and 5-day unilaterally enucleated rats these were found in the lower half of the retina(More)
We studied the distribution pattern and percentage of bilaterally projecting, double-labeled retinal ganglion cells in the albino rat by the retrograde fluorescent double labeling. Forty-five albino (Wistar, Japan Clea) rats of either sex and of different stage of development ranging in age from the day of birth (Day 0) to Day 30, were used. With the rats(More)
Cats were injected with the fluorescent retrograde tracers, Fluoro-Gold (FG) and Evans Blue (EB), into the left and right lateral geniculate nuclei (LGN), respectively. About 4.56% of the ganglion cells in the temporal retina were double-labeled by these dyes. 4.7% of these cells were of the large type, 30.3% were of the medium type, and 65% were classified(More)
