Morphological asymmetries of the tectum opticum in the pigeon

Abstract

Pigeons are visually lateralized with a dominance of the right eye. Due to the virtually complete decussation of the optic nerves in birds, a right eye superiority probably depends on a left brain hemisphere dominance. The aim of the present study was to analyze whether morphological asymmetries in the cross-sectional area of perikarya can be found within… (More)
