Abstract

Axons of retinal ganglion cells in the eye form a system of retinal projections, which carry information about the world around us to targets in the brain for processing. Recent work combining video imaging technology, manipulations of mouse embryos in vivo, and molecular approaches have begun to shed light on how this major sensory pathway in the mammalian brain comes about during embryonic development.
