Both

Beginning


approximately


two decades


, a major


theme


in visual


science


took


shape


in which


the central


pathways


of vision


verte-


brates


are divided


into


primarily


two different


visual


systems


(Schnei-


der,


1969).

speaking--projects

the groundwork was

This

of the contralateral

Akert


stated


more


expli-


citly


the function


of the reflex:


an object


appearing


in the periphery


of the visual


field


can be scrutinized


with


optimum


acuity


through


voluntary


change


of ocular


position,


to align

higher

zones


in the central


visual


field.


Akert


furthermore


described


systematic


correlation


between


coverage


areas


of visual


space


on the


retina


and the representation


of those


areas


on the fish


tectum,


with


experimental


histological


tra-


cing


of optic


fibers.


The correspondence


sensory


afferents


with


motor


efferents


in the


tectum,


Akert


said


, pointed


to a functional


rela-


tionship


between


the perception

space


sponsive


turning movements


toward


such


an object.


Thus


Akert


elabor-


ated


on Hess


et al.'s


theme


not only


extending


it to the midbrain


visual


pathway


of vertebrates


in general,


but also


investigating


the functional


, topographic


projection


patterns


of that


pathway.


Leghissa


(1951)


explored


same


correlation


between


specific


movements


and contralateral


tectal


stimulation


in goldfish


(Carassius


auratus).


He also


found


a correspondence


between


stimulated


tectal


areas


and resulting


shifts


in the visual


field

ments.


Later,


Ewert


(1967)


demonstrated


that


toads


(Bufo bufo)


also


make


turning movements


in response


to contralateral


tectal


stimulation.


Thus,


similar


functions


were


uncovered


for midbrain


pathways


in at


least


fishes


, amphibians,


and mammals.

(1936)


dominated

for about


years,


but with more


attention


focused


on elas-

in the 1970's,


at least


six new nomenclatures


appeared.


Recent


attempts


to consolidate


these


descriptions


have


been


published


Northcutt


(1978)


and Reperant


et al.


(1986).


What


does


appear


to be generally


agreed


upon


however,


is the basic


pattern


of optic


fiber pathway


and termination within


the elasmobranch


tectum.


Contrary


to the situation


with


teleosts,


the optic


fibers


sharks


not enter


tectum


from


its external


surface,


rather


project within


the deep


tectum and


turn


outward


towards


the dorsal


zone,


terminating


in the superficial


layers


(Northcutt,


1977


Reperant


et al.,


1986).


Thus,


although


differentiation

teleosts,


seems


clear


that


the site


of optic

is strictly


limited

Objectives


of the Study


primary


purpose


of this


study was


to determine


if sharks,


exemplified


here


the juvenile

have


within


their

topographically


nonlinear


representations


of their


visual


field


that


would

To this


end,


sought


the following major


objectives:


map the precise


retinotectal


projection


of the visual


field


of the lemon


shark


onto


its optic


tectum


utilizing


electrophysiological


techniques,


and thereby


produce


the first

the relative


distributions

and ganglion

density


across


the lemon


shark


retina


as indicators


of topographic


heterogeneity


in retinal


organization,


in order


to provide


an anatomical


basis


for the spatial


pattern


of the retinotectal


projection;


assess


the implications


of such


topographic


organization


of spatial


vision


for the visual


ecology


of the lemon


shark,


taking


into


consideration


the demands


of habitat


and lifestyle


on the visual


system


of this


shark


species.

First

this
