Tissue functions and mechanical coupling of cells must be integrated throughout development. A striking example of this coupling is the interactions of body wall muscle and hypodermal cells in Caenorhabditis elegans. These tissues are intimately associated in development and their interactions generate structures that provide a continuous mechanical link to(More)
This study presents an ultrastructural analysis of layers 8 and 9 in the optic tectum of Xenopus laevis. Retinotectal axons were labelled with horseradish peroxidase and tectal cells were labelled with antibody to GABA. Four distinct axonal and dendritic structures were identified. GABA-negative axon terminals formed asymmetric synapses and were categorized(More)
To investigate the circuitry that mediates binocular interactions in the tectum of Xenopus frogs, we have begun to identify the tectal cells that receive ipsilateral eye input relayed via the nucleus isthmi. Isthmotectal axons were labeled with horseradish peroxidase, and thin sections were labeled by postembedding immunogold reaction with antibodies to(More)
