One to two months later, the transplants were visualized and injected with either horseradish peroxidase (HRP) or wheat germ agglutinin conjugated with HRP (WGA/HRP). After the appropriate survival time and processing with either(More)
A developmentally transient occipitospinal projection arising from the visual association cortex persists if a fetal tectum is transplanted to the spinal cord at birth and at the same time, the host tectum is removed. The pathway is not sustained if the transplant is placed in the cord without a tectal lesion or if the tectum alone is damaged. Thus the(More)
This study examines the age of referral and the effect of early intervention for the physically handicapped child. Fifty children were referred before 9 months of age, and they were compared with 55 children referred after 9 months of age. At 18 months of age, the children in the earlier referred group showed greater developmental progress in acquisition of(More)
