The locus of optic nerve head representation in the chick retinotectal map lacks a retinal projection.


Retinotopic representation of the optic nerve head of the contralateral eye lies at the rostrodorsal face of the avian tectum. Since the homologous mammalian retino-collicular map shows an optic disc gap, the present anterograde HRP transport experiments were designed to detect an equivalent gap in the avian tectal retinorecipient strata.
