Self-organizing Neural Maps: From Retina to Tectum describes the underlying processes that determine how retinal fibers self-organize into an orderly visual map. The formation of neural maps is a fundamental organizing concept in neurodevelopment that can shed light on developmental mechanisms and the functions of genes elsewhere. The book presents a summary of research in the retinotectal field with an ultimate goal of synthesizing how underlying mechanisms in neural development harmoniously come together to create life. A broad spectrum of neuroscientists and biomedical scientists with differing backgrounds and varied expertise will find this book useful.

  • Describes the mechanisms relating to the developmental wiring of the retinotectal system
  • Brings together the state-of-the-art research in axon guidance and neuronal activity mechanisms in map formation
  • Focuses on topographical maps and inclusion of multiple animal models, from fish to mammals
  • Explores the molecular guidance and activity dependent cue components involved in neurodevelopment
