Pattern of projections from eye to brain in mice. Retinal ganglion cell (RGC) axon projections from the retina to the lateral geniculate nucleus of the thalamus (LGN) and superior colliculus (SC) are mapped with respect to retinotopic origin. In the retinotopic map the D-V axis of the retina is mapped onto the L-M axis of the SC and the N-T axis of the retina is mapped onto the C-R axis of the SC. D, V, N, T: Dorsal, ventral, nasal, temporal. L, M, C, R: Lateral, medial, caudal, rostral.
