Brain Organization and Retinal Pathways in the Sleepy Lizard, Tiliqua rugosa
Abstract:Brain structure and retinal pathways to the brain of the sleepy lizard Tiliqua rugosa were described, with this species identifiable as a type II lizard according to brain organization. The retinal pathway appeared entirely crossed to the opposite side of the brain with termination of retinal fibres observed in the optic thalamus, pretectum, tectum and brainstem tegmentum.
