Description

Light and electron microscopic degeneration studies were used to examine the telencephalotectal pathway in goldfish. Both techniques showed that each telencephalic lobe sent bilateral projections to several tectal laminae. Degenerating synaptic terminals and fibers were observed in the major retinal projection lamina as well as in other tectal laminae. The terminals contained round to oval synaptic vesicles, asymmetric synapses and contacted relatively small postsynaptic profiles.
