Application of light and electron microscopic techniques to the superior colliculus of the normal rat shows that a number of neurons die within the first week after birth. Cells in the earliest recognizable stages of degeneration are characterized by an overall increase in electron density and dilation of the intracellular cisternae, although there are only(More)
Removal of the eyes from newborn rats causes the neurons in the superior colliculus (SC) to degenerate in a morphologically less mature form than that which is found when the cells die naturally. The results indicate that afferents are important for the maturation of SC neurons and may explain several apparently conflicting results reported for the(More)
