The B fragment of cholera toxin (CT-B) provides a highly sensitive anterograde tracer for labeling retinofugal axons, revealing dense projections to known central retinorecipient nuclei, and sparse but distinct inputs to regions that have not been traditionally recognized as targets of direct retinal projections. In hamsters, we can identify CT-B labeled(More)
We have examined the morphology of afferent endings that originate in three distinct cell groups and terminate in the lateral posterior nucleus of the thalamus (LP). Retino-LP projections were sparse, occurred throughout the nucleus, and could be classified into 1) simple en passant varicosities and terminal swellings found on poorly branched fibers in all(More)
Neonatal tectal lesions in hamsters result in the elimination of a major central target of retinal axons, massively denervate the lateral posterior nucleus of the thalamus (LP), and lead to a marked increase of the retino-LP projection. In such animals, retino-LP axons show all of the normally-occurring terminal types. In addition, large clusters of(More)
The Capability Maturity Model (CMM) is used in the software industry to improve design process as well as product quality. Likewise, CMM is also used in the education sector for a similar purpose. This paper presents, in particular, a proposed maturity model for curriculum design for Institutions of Higher Learning in Malaysia. The Curriculum Design(More)
