Inhibition of the NT-3 Receptor TrkC, Early in Chick Embryogenesis, Results in Severe Reductions in Multiple Neuronal Subpopulations in the Dorsal Root Ganglia
To assess functions of neurotrophins at defined times in development, we have prepared antibodies to the extracellular domains of each of the trk receptors. Here, antibodies to trkC, the majorExpand
The growth and organization of the optic nerve and tract in juvenile and adult goldfish
The optic nerves, tracts, and tecta of goldfish, 1 to 5 years old, have been studied anatomically using light and electron microscopy, horseradish peroxidase (HRP), and tritiated prolineExpand
Horizontal cells of the mouse retina contain glutamic acid decarboxylase-like immunoreactivity during early developmental stages
We have used an antiserum to L-glutamic acid decarboxylase ((GAD), a synthesizing enzyme for gamma-aminobutyric acid (GABA)) to localize putative GABAergic neurons in the developing C57BL/6J mouseExpand
Order in the optic nerve of goldfish.
A small amount of horseradish peroxidase, injected into the goldfish optic nerve and transported into the retina, filled an annulus of ganglion cells. Since the retina grew by annular addition ofExpand
Postnatal neurogenesis in the kitten retina
Postnatal neurogenesis in the kitten retina was studied using 3H‐thymidine radioautography. Kittens were injected with 3H‐thymidine at 1 day, 10 days, 3 weeks or 4 weeks after birth and allowed toExpand
Paths of axons in the visual system of perciform fish and implications of these paths for rules governing axonal growth

The optic nerve of many perciform fish is ribbon-shaped, and axons from ganglion cells in specific parts of the retina are consistently found in specific places in this ribbon. I utilized thisExpand

  • 1 August 1978
A Golgi study of beta (brisk-X type) ganglion cells has been done to compare ganglion cells in the retina of 3-week-old and adult cats. An anatomical basis for the large receptive field centers foundExpand
Organization of retinopetal axons in the optic nerve of the cichlid fish, Herotilapia multispinosa
We have studied the position and numbers of retinopetal axons in the rainbow cichlid fish, Herotilapia multispinosa, to determine the response of related parts of the brain of fish to the continualExpand
Development of Ganglion Cells in the Retina of the Cat
The eye of a cat grows significantly between birth and adulthood. Part of this growth occurs after the kitten has begun to exhibit visually guided behavior. Both the neural retina and the opticalExpand
