Choroidal blood flow in pigeons is regulated by the medial part of the nucleus of Edinger-Westphal (EW) via the ipsilateral ciliary ganglion. Interruption of this circuit by unilateral lesions of EW results in pathological modifications in the morphology of retinal photoreceptors in the ipsilateral eye in pigeons housed under 12hr light (400 lux)/12hr dark… CONTINUE READING
