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

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 projections in the cat: A cholera toxin B subunit study

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

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

Retinorecipient areas in the diurnal murine rodent Arvicanthis niloticus: A disproportionally large superior colliculus

Morphometric measurements revealed that the superficial layers of the SC are disproportionately enlarged relative to other retinorecipient regions and brain size compared with rats and mice, which is suggested to reflect the selective projection of cone‐driven retinal ganglion cells to the SC.



Olfactory relationships of the telencephlaon and diencephalon in the rabbit. 1. An autoradiographic study of the efferent connections of the main and accessory olfactory bulbs

The efferent connections of the main and accessory olfactory bulbs in the female albino rabbit have been studied using the autoradiographic method for tracing axonal pathways. Following unilateral

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

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

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

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.
