Abstract

Retinae transplanted over the midbrain of newborn rats establish functional connections with host brain centers, which provide a substrate for several distinct visual functions. These responses provide insight into the relationship between anatomy and behavior under normal conditions and after brain injury, as well as into the strategies used by an animal to extract significant information from its visual environment.
