In the present work, we characterize electrophysiologically a commissural subcortical pathway which is related to binocular interactions in the nucleus of the optic tract (NOT) of the opossum. The main role played by the circuit comprising this pathway seems to be in relaying information coming from the ipsilateral eye to the NOT. The strongest evidence comes from experiments in which lidocaine was injected into the NOT and the ensuing effects in the opposite nucleus were monitored under… CONTINUE READING
