Comparative survey on enzyme localization, ultrastructural arrangement and functional organization in the optic tectum of non-mammalian vertebrates

The histochemical localization of some enzymatic activities is surveyed in the optic tectum of vertebrates from cyclostomes to birds. These data are compared with results arising from ultrastructural and experimental works in order to outline some possible connections between enzyme localization and functional organization of the optic tectum. The most… CONTINUE READING
