Transplanted neural tissue develops connections with host rat brain.

Abstract

Superior collicular fragments transplanted from fetal to newborn rat brains develop complex internal organization and receive visual afferents from the host providing they lie sufficiently close to the host visual pathways. This system allows investigation in vivo of special affinities between cells of the mammalian central nervous system.
