Cortical Ingrowth

Figure 1.8. Schematic representation of stages in the differentiation of callosal terminal arbors in visual areas of the cat. The stages are axonal elongation, subcortical branching, cortical ingrowth, cortical branching, and synaptogenesis (the last two are here represented together). Notice that each stage is followed by partially regressive events, that is, elimination of long callosal axons (interrupted) between the second and third stage, of subcortical branches during synaptogenesis, and of
