Functional implications of mouse hereditary retinal degeneration have been studied at the level of the superior colliculus and visual cortex in the C57BL/6J-le rd strain. On autoradiography at a light-microscopic level, following eye injection with radioactive compounds, central visual structures appeared normal. A slight reduction in ipsilateral retinal projection was probably related to reduced retinal pigmentation associated with the light ear (le) mutation. In recordings from visual cortex… CONTINUE READING
