Abstract

An abnormal, ipsilateral projection was formed by deflecting optic fibers that normally innervate the posterior part of one tectum into the anterior end of the opposite tectum.When anterior recipient tectum was simultaneously denervate, the deflected fibers formed a retinotopic map in this region that was reversed with respect to the anterior-posterior tectal axis.
