In the normal development of retinotectal connections, the site in the tectum at which an optic fiber synapses is related to the position of its ganglion-cell body in the retina. How and when the ganglion cells acquire information about their positions is unknown, but the positional information that each ganglion cell will ultimately act upon is determined or specified at embryonic stages 28-32 in the clawed frog, Xenopus laevis. Here we report that once positional information has been so… CONTINUE READING
