The afferent connections to the tectum mesencephali were determined by unilateral injections of HRP in the hagfish, Eptatretus burgeri, whose eyes are degenerate and buried below the skin. Retrogradely labeled cells were observed ipsilaterally in the hypothalamus, lateral part of the pars ventralis thalami of Jansen, and nucl. reticularis mesencephali, and contralaterally in the tectum, nucl. sensorius n. V, area acoustico-lateralis, and "nucl. funiculi dorsalis". Of these non-visual afferents… CONTINUE READING
