Counts of callosal neurons retrogradely labeled by horseradish peroxidase (visualized using multiple substrates) were obtained in areas 17 and 18 of five kittens reared with their eyelids bilaterally sutured and of three kittens which had undergone bilateral enucleation on postnatal days 1–4. These counts were compared with those obtained in normal adult cats. The normal adult distribution of the callosal neurons results from the gradual postnatal reduction of a more widespread juvenile… CONTINUE READING
