The retinal projection to the basal telencephalon was studied in eight species of primates from the suborders Strepsirhini and Haplorhini, including one anthropoid primate, the gibbon. Animals received an intraocular injection of tritiated amino acids and the distribution of retinal fibers and terminals was demonstrated by autoradiographic techniques in horizontal and coronal sections. In all species a discrete group of labeled retinal fibers is observed to branch off from the dorsolateral… 

The suprachiasmatic nucleus in the sheep: retinal projections and cytoarchitectural organization

TLDR
The results suggest that the intrinsic organization of the sheep SCN is characterized by gradual regional transitions between different zones, and that it lacks a distinct compartmental organization.

Retinal afferents to the dorsal raphe nucleus in rats and Mongolian gerbils

TLDR
Major differences observed in the extent and configuration of the retinal‐DRN pathway may be related to the diurnal/crepuscular vs. nocturnal habits of these two species.

Retinal projections in the cat: A cholera toxin B subunit study

TLDR
The B fragment of cholera toxin is localized immunohistochemically in order to identify direct retinal projections in adult cats and the morphological characteristics of the retinal axon terminals in most of the identified novel target sites are described.

Target-specific morphology of retinal axon arbors in the adult hamster

The B fragment of cholera toxin (CT-B) provides a highly sensitive anterograde tracer for labeling retinofugal axons, revealing dense projections to known central retinorecipient nuclei, and sparse

Central projections of melanopsin‐expressing retinal ganglion cells in the mouse

TLDR
Staining patterns after monocular enucleation revealed that the projections of these cells are overwhelmingly crossed except for the projection to the SCN, which is bilaterally symmetrical, and that other ganglion cells do contribute at least some retinal input to these targets.

Visual system of a naturally microphthalmic mammal: The blind mole rat, Spalax ehrenbergi

Retinal projections and visual thalamo‐cortical connections were studied in the subterranean mole rat, belonging to the superspecies Spalax ehrenbergi, by anterograde and retrograde tracing

The differential projections of the olfactory bulb and accessory olfactory bulb in mammals

TLDR
Three species were studied, the rabbit, opossum and rat, and the topographic segregation of the areas of termination of the olfactory and accessory ofactory (vomeronasal) projections is suggestive of a functional dichotomy in the organization of the wreath system.

Retinohypothalamic tract in the female albino rat: A study using horseradish peroxidase conjugated to cholera toxin

TLDR
In this study, horseradish peroxidase conjugated to cholera toxin (CT‐HRP), a sensitive neural tracer, was employed to describe the RHT in the female albino rat and its implications for circadian as well as noncircadian photobiologic effects are discussed.

Efferent projections of the suprachiasmatic nucleus: I. Studies using anterograde transport of Phaseolus vulgaris leucoagglutinin in the rat

The efferent projections of the suprachiasmatic nucleus (SCh) in the rat hypothalamus have been reexamined with the anterograde tracer Phaseolus vulgaris leucoagglutinin (PHA‐L), which displays

The afferent connections of the suprachiasmatic nucleus of the golden hamster with emphasis on the retinohypothalamic projection

The afferent connections of the hypothalamic suprachiasmatic nucleus (SCN) of the golden hamster were examined using horseradish peroxidase (HRP) as the retrograde tracer molecule. Unilateral

The organization of projections from the olfactory bulb to the piriform cortex and olfactory tubercle in the rat

TLDR
Observations indicate that axons innervating the piriform cortex do not emit many long collaterals after they leave the lateral olfactory bulb, but there were regions of greater density of labeled that differed in the various brains.

Efferent projections of the suprachiasmatic nucleus: II. Studies using retrograde transport of fluorescent dyes and simultaneous peptide immunohistochemistry in the rat

TLDR
The PHA‐L method was used to show that the subparaventricular zone projects in turn massively to these same regions, as well as back to the SCh itself and to the periaqueductal gray.
