Topographies of ipsilateral and contralateral retinal inputs to the optic tectum were studied by means of electrophysiological multi-unit recordings from the superficial layers. It was found that the nasotemporal coordinate of the visual field is represented along a rostrocaudal axis on the contralateral tectal map and along a caudorostral axis on the ipsilateral map. Electrical stimulation of one tectal hemisphere and recording of the response in the other hemisphere revealed that the… CONTINUE READING
