Abstract

Locally-correlated neural activity appears to play a key role in refining topographically mapped projections. The retinotectal projection of the goldfish normally regains a high degree of spatial precision after regeneration of a cut optic nerve, but it fails to do so if retinal ganglion cell activity is blocked by tetrodotoxin, or if local correlations in… (More)
