Medical Definition of Retino tectal connection

1. A problem that has exercised developmental biologists is the way in which nerve fibres from the developing retina are mapped on to the tectum of the brain. There seems to be a good positioning system in operation and a variety of mechanisms probably operate, including control of the fasciculation of fibres in the optic nerve and some specific recognition of the correct target area by the nerve growth cone.
