Abstract:

A final report is made for nine years of work done under contract. Advances in the study of sensory deprivation are considered and the direction of experiments within the larger field are outlined. Current work in progress is discussed in three detailed reports. The first examines the neuroanatomy of visual centers within the brain linked to a non-functioning eye. In the second report a method of characterizing the maturity of a layered neural structure was derived from cell population counts in normal rat superior colliculus. The third report updates earlier descriptions of an approach to biological unit counting through computerized scanning procedures. Author
