The instructive role of binocular vision in the Xenopus tectum

Abstract

This review presents the fascinating neurobiology underlying the development of the frog optic tectum, the brain structure where the two separate inputs from the two eye are combined into a single, integrated map. In the species Xenopus laevis, binocular visual information has a dramatic impact on axon growth and connectivity, and the formation of binocular… (More)
