The postnatal development of two avian brain areas, the nucleus of the basal optic root (nBOR) and the lentiform nucleus of the mesencephalon (LM), was studied using the 2-deoxy-D-glucose (2-DG) method. Previous studies have shown that these nuclei respond to whole field visual motion, which is used for optokinetic eye movements. In the present study vertical whole field visual motion presented to one eye resulted in the accumulation of 2-DG label in the contralateral nBOR in both hatchlings… CONTINUE READING
