1. In normal hamsters the visual cortex sends a retinotopically organized projection to the ipsilateral superior colliculus. 2. Acute or chronic unilateral ablations of visual cortex in adult animals decrease the incidence of directionally selective cells encountered in the superficial laminae of the ipsilateral colliculus, but not in the deeper layers (those ventral to the stratum opticum). 3. Unilateral ablations of visual cortex in infant hamsters induce an aberrant crossed projection to the… CONTINUE READING
