The regeneration of retinotectal connections has been extensively studied in amphibians and it is well established that a fibre projection of approximately normal retinotopic arrangement may be re-established across the tectum when the optic nerve fibres have been cut and allowed to regenerate. The most widely accepted hypothesis which has been proposed to account for these findings is the hypothesis of neuronal specificity (Sperry, 1943, 1944, 1945, 1951, 1965). According to this hypothesis… CONTINUE READING
