A study of goldfish optic tectum was performed with conventional electron microscopy and with the Golgi-EM technique described by Fairén et al. ('77). Five types of tectal afferents, three types of interneurons and three types of efferent neurons were investigated. Afferents from the torus longitudinalis, which terminate in the marginal layer, contain round synaptic vesicles with a mean diameter of 43 nm. Optic afferents, which terminate in the superficial gray and plexiform layer, are… CONTINUE READING
