Several recent studies have indicated that the optic tectum or superior colliculus may serve more important and diverse functions than was formerly considered (Denny-Brown, 1962; Sprague and Meikle, 1965) and there is also evidence that the cortical connexions of the colliculus are significant in such functions (Sprague, 1966a, b). It has been established for some time that the superior colliculus receives a substantial projection from the neocortex (Meikle and Sprague, 1964), but relatively… CONTINUE READING
