Retrograde transport of horseradish peroxidase injected iontophoretically into the nucleus of the optic tract of cats revealed that the direction-selective cells in this pretectal nucleus receive direct retinal projections from small retinal ganglion cells, the so-called gamma-cells. These cells from a horizontal band on the contralateral retina. Few labeled cells are found in the ipsilateral temporal retina. The input from the contralateral retina is 10 times more numerous than from the… CONTINUE READING
