High-intensity photocoagulator lesions placed nasally to the optic disc one eye destroyed all retinal layers and led to visual deafferentation of the lateral part of layer A in the contralateral lateral geniculate nucleus (LGN) of adult cats. The retino-geniculate topography was determined with vertical tungsten microelectrode penetrations through LGN layers A and A1 before and at different times after photocoagulation. Before the 20th day a border of light excitability was found in layer. A… CONTINUE READING
