Embryonic retinal ablation and post-metamorphic optic nerve crush: effects upon the pattern of regenerated retinotectal connections.

Abstract

We examined relationships between healing observed during embryonic Xenopus retinal and optic nerve regeneration and resultant visuotectal pattern formation. Dorsal (D) and nasoventral (NV) 1/3 sized eye fragments were surgically created in stage 32 Xenopus laevis embryos. Gross anatomical healing modes of these fragments were examined 2 days post-surgery… (More)
