Selectivity in regeneration of the oculomotor nerve in the cichlid fish, Astronotus ocellatus by Roger Sperry( )

1 edition published in 1965 in Undetermined and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

It has long been considered a general rule for nerve regeneration that the reinnervation of skeletal muscle is nonselective. Regenerating nerve fibers are supposed to reconnect with one skeletal muscle as readily as another according to studies covering a wide range of vertebrates (Weiss, 1937; Weiss & Taylor, 1944; Weiss & Hoag, 1946; Bernstein & Guth, 1961; Guth, 1961, 1962, 1963). Similarly, in embryogenesis proper functional connexions between nerve centers and particular muscles are supposedly attained, not by selective nerve outgrowth but rather through a process of ‘myotypic modulation’ (Weiss, 1955) that presupposes nonselective peripheral innervation. Doubt about the general validity of this rule and the concepts behind it has come from a series of studies on regeneration of the oculomotor nerve in teleosts, urodeles, and anurans and of spinal fin nerves in teleosts (Sperry, 1946, 1947, 1950, 1965; Sperry & Deupree, 1956; Arora & Sperry, 1957a, 1964)

Cerebral hemispheres of man by Roger Sperry( Visual )

in Undetermined and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

Demonstrates the results of testing on patients who have had their brain hemispheres surgically disconnected to relieve the severe symptoms of epilepsy. Uses diagrams to explain the surgery, and shows tests which illustrate the capabilities of both hemispheres after surgery and later, when reeducation of the brain has taken place

in Undetermined and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide
