Although it is generally believed that the central projections of the retina in birds are entirely crossed, using wheat germ agglutinin-conjugated horseradish peroxidase (WGA-HRP) as an anterograde tracer, we have found that in normal posthatched chicks there is a small ipsilateral retinofugal projection to the diencephalon and midbrain. Most of the ipsilateral fibers appear to be directed to the lateral anterior and dorsolateral anterior nuclei of the thalamus, to the pretectal region, and to… CONTINUE READING
