Subcortical connections of the superior colliculus were investigated in albino and pigmented rats using retrograde and anterograde tracing with horseradish peroxidase (HRP), following unilateral injection of HRP into the superior colliculus. Afferents project bilaterally from the parabigeminal nuclei, the nucleus of the optic tract, the posterior pretectal(More)
Retinorecipient regions of the ventral lateral geniculate nucleus of the thalamus and the superior colliculus of the midbrain are linked by reciprocal axonal projections. In this study we have investigated the ultrastructural characteristics, the distribution, and the postsynaptic targets of the terminals of axons projecting to the ventral lateral(More)
A novel stilbene disulfonate, 4-trimethylammonium-4'-isothiocyanostilbene-2,2'-disulfonic acid (TIDS), has been chemically synthesized, and the interaction of this probe with human erythrocyte anion exchanger (AE1) was characterized. Covalent labeling of intact erythrocytes by [N(+)((14)CH(3))(3)]TIDS revealed that specific modification of AE1 was achieved(More)
Children with exceptional learning needs find it very difficult to retain content information from the regular curriculum. Many content teachers also find it difficult to adapt curriculum to the learning needs of these exception children within the confines of the classroom and without any assistance. Although many schools are equipped with technology(More)
The terminals of axons projecting to the olivary pretectal nucleus have been identified by electron microscopy following injections of horseradish peroxidase into the superior colliculus of adult albino rats. The labelled terminals were equated with RD-terminals described in previous studies of this nucleus. They were 0.3-1.3 micron in diameter and(More)
