...Philip S. Ulinski The ultrastructure of the dorsal lateral geniculate complex in the turtles Pseudemys scripta elegans and Chrysemys picta belli has been studied. The majority of neurons have somata situated in a cell plate that forms the medial face of the complex. Relatively few synaptic contacts...

...N. Mrosovsky Field experiments with hatchling green sea turtles (Chelonia mydas) show that a positive phototropotaxis will account for many aspects of their ability to find the sea after emerging from the nest. The tropotactic reaction is discussed with respect to retino-tectal projections...

(2) The sensitivity of the vomeronasal system to various general odorants...
