An in vitro assay for retinotectal specificity has been described. The results show that, in the chick embryo, cells dissociated from the dorsal retina preferentially adhered to ventral tectal surfaces while cells from the ventral retina preferentially adhered to dorsal tectal surfaces. These adhesive preferences thus mimic the retinotectal specificity… CONTINUE READING
