Single retinal ganglion cells projecting bilaterally to the lateral geniculate nuclei or superior colliculi by way of axon collaterals in the cat.

In most mammals with frontalized eyes, retinal ganglion cells in the nasal or temporal retina send their axons to the contralateral or ipsilateral half, respectively, of the brain. Previous studies in the cat, however, have indicated a retinal region of "nasotemporal overlap" from which arise the retinal projections to both the contralateral and ipsilateral… CONTINUE READING
