This article describes measurements on midsagittal magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) scans that distinctly define normal and abnormal rostral-caudal relationships between the(More)

The time course of the cell body reaction to axotomy was determined in goldfish retinal ganglion cells by measuring cell body size and the amount of labelled protein conveyed by fast axonal transport to the optic tectum, both of which increase during regeneration of the optic axons. Following a single testing lesion of the optic nerve, the regenerating(More)
