Figure 6

Typical morphological features of embryonic tectal grafts (sheets of tissue) in neonate hosts. A, Holmes neurofibrillar staining. Note the fiber-free (ff) area covering the fiber-rich core of the graft (T). B, Nissl staining. C, widespread retinal input throughout the fiber-free lamina. Autoradiogram after 3[H]-labeled proline injection in the contralateral eye. Arrow points to the afferent retinal tract. Cb, cerebellum. Scale bars, 190 μm. From Lund and Harvey (75).
