Previously we have demonstrated that adult albino rats with one eye removed at birth (OEB) relearn a black-white discrimination faster than those monocularly enucleated at maturity (OET) when relearning is conducted after lesioning of the visual cortex contralateral to the remaining eye (Type A experiment). This faster relearning phenomenon is considered to be one behavioral expression of the functioning of the expanded uncrossed visual pathways (expanded UXVPs) resulting from monocular… CONTINUE READING
