Experiments were designed to find the degree to which regenerated optic axons occupied their previous locations in the optic tracts. Following optic nerve crush and regeneration, either the dorsal, ventral, peripheral, temporal, or nasal part of the retina was ablated. The axons of the remaining retinal ganglion cells (RGCs) were labeled with cobalt… CONTINUE READING
