Peripheral and central contribution to the pupillary reflex control in amphibians: pupillographic and theoretical considerations


The amphibian pupillary response is mediated by two mechanisms. One is restricted to the iris itself, the other involves the central nervous system. In the present study we investigated the dynamic of the pupillary response and separated the parts by experiments with lesions of the optic and oculomotor nerve. The pupillary response of urodeles is comparable… (More)
