Abstract

K. S. LASHLEY Department of Psychology, The University of Chicago SIXTEEN lTXT FIGURES AND ONE PLATE (Accepted for publication May 11, 1933) Recent studies of detail vision in the rat (Fields, '29, '31; Lashley, '30 a, '31; Borovski, '30; Russell, '32) show a close similarity in the functional organization of the visual field of this animal with that of the Primates, in spite of the apparently great structural differences. The interpretation of such experimental results calls for a detailed account of the anatomy of the visual system and as yet the optic structures have not been analyzed sufficiently to provide an adequate basis for experimental control. The studies of Cajal ('11)' Fortuyn ( '14)' Qurdjian ( '27), Clark ('31, '32) and Papez and Freeman ('31) have laid a foundation for studies of anatomical details but still present little more than an enumeration of the nuclei and areas receiving innervation from the retina. Minkowski ( '20), Brouwer ( '23)' Sjaff and Zeeman ( '24)' Overbosch ( '28) and Putnam and Putnam ( '26) have defined the projection of the retina upon the lateral geniculate nucleus, colliculus and cerebral cortex in the rabbit but the differences between the rat and
