During development of the projection from the retina to the brain in the chick, a transient ipsilateral retinotectal projection forms and disappears. This disappearance is coincident with a wave of ganglion cell death in the retina. The contribution of cell death to the disappearance of this projection, as opposed to another mechanism such as axon… CONTINUE READING
