Abstract

The total decussation of avian optic tracts offers a system in which biochemical correlates of visual deprivation in one tract can be compared with the opposite tract as a normal control. The short term effect of unilateral eye removal in new hatched chicks was to prevent the normal increases in tissue weight and to modify the level of acetylcholinesterase activity in the contralateral optic lobe. © 1969.
