Figure 5-10.
Representative frontal sections from the telencephalon (A) to the mesencephalon (G), showing the distribution of retinal projections and retinopetal neurons. The left optic nerve was injected with biocytin. Labeled fibers (thin lines), terminals (small dots), and retrogradely labeled cells (large dots) are illustrated. Scale bar, 200 μm.
