We studied the retinal projections, the distribution of cytochrome oxidase activity and the cyto‐ and myeloarchitecture of the subcortical visual system in the subterranean Ansell's mole‐rat Cryptomys anselli. The optic nerve contained 1500 myelinated and a similar number of unmyelinated fibres. The retina projected to all the visual structures described in surface‐dwelling sighted rodents. The suprachiasmatic nucleus was large and received bilateral retinal input. All other visual nuclei were… Expand
