Extracellular recordings reveal absence of magneto sensitive units in the avian optic tectum
(Springer Verlag, 2014)
© 2014, The Author(s).There is a consensus that birds detect the earth’s magnetic field and use some of its features for orientation and homing purposes. Since the late 1960s, when the first solid behavioral evidence of ...
Sonic hedgehog (Shh)/Gli modulates the spatial organization of neuroepithelial cell proliferation in the developing chick optic tectum
Background: Sonic hedgehog (Shh)/Gli pathway plays an important regulatory role on the neuroepithelial cells (NEc) proliferation in the dorsal regions of the developing vertebrate Central Nervous System. The aim of this ...
Retinal removal up-regulates cannabinoid CB1 receptors in the chick optic tectum
The endocannabinoid system has been implicated in several neurobiological processes, including neurodegeneration and neuro protection. The aim of this study was to evaluate the effects of unilateral retinal ablation on the ...
