Segregated binocular maps in the dorsal lateral geniculate nucleus (LGN) develop from a stage where they initially overlap. Sophisticated computational models have been used to describe the dynamics of three-dimensional LGN shape changes that play a role in segregation. These models have revealed specific nuclear growth vectors associated with the process of ocular segregation in the LGN (Williams and Jeffery [2001] J Comp Neurol 430:332-342.). In this study, we use similar techniques to… CONTINUE READING
