I have examined the pathways of retinotectal fibres regenerating back to the contralateral tectum, and also to innervated and 'virgin' ipsilateral tecta in postmetamorphic Xenopus. The fibres were visualized by HRP labelling of either the whole optic nerve, or a selected quadrant of the retina. Most fibres grow into either the ipsilateral or contralateral optic tract, although a small proportion go down the outside of the contralateral optic nerve. In the tracts, many fibres grow superficially… CONTINUE READING
