This book was released on 15 October 2019 with total pages 472. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: Self-organizing Neural Maps: From Retina to Tectum describes the underlying processes that determine how retinal fibers self-organize into an orderly visual map. The formation of neural maps is a fundamental organizing concept in neurodevelopment that can shed light on developmental mechanisms and the functions of genes elsewhere. The book presents a summary of research in the retinotectal field with an ultimate goal of synthesizing how underlying mechanisms in neural development harmoniously come together to create life. A broad spectrum of neuroscientists and biomedical scientists with differing backgrounds and varied expertise will find this book useful. Describes the mechanisms relating to the developmental wiring of the retinotectal system Brings together the state-of-the-art research in axon guidance and neuronal activity mechanisms in map formation Focuses on topographical maps and inclusion of multiple animal models, from fish to mammals Explores the molecular guidance and activity dependent cue components involved in neurodevelopment
