Figure 10. Drawings of consecutive 40-μm-thick cryostat coronal sections through the brainstem, from caudal (top left) to rostral (bottom right), of a rat 46 weeks after grafting a peripheral nerve segment between the left retina and the dorsal aspect of the left midbrain between the OPN and NOT.

Figure 10

Drawings of consecutive 40-μm-thick cryostat coronal sections through the brainstem, from caudal (top left) to rostral (bottom right), of a rat 46 weeks after grafting a peripheral nerve segment between the left retina and the dorsal aspect of the left midbrain between the OPN and NOT. The drawings illustrate the distribution of regenerated retinal fibers orthogradely labeled with CTB injected 5 days earlier into the PN-grafted retina. Note the segregation of the retinal axons between OPN and NOT from the rostral to the caudal aspect. Scale bar, 0.5 mm. The insets are drawings of the most caudal and rostral sections, respectively. Scale bar, 1 mm. From Aviles-Trigueros et al. (23).
