I have a great deal of background in neurophysiology, vision,
and vision research. I've been out of a few years, so I can't
say I'm up on all the latest.

But to start with, you seem a might bit confused, as usual. It
was Ray,not me, who was saying the eye was just a passive
receptor of light, did no processing of vision, and contained no
nervous tissue. Further there were two-way connections from the
brain back to the retina by which the brain was supposedly
telling the eye what it could see or not see. Supposedly
research in kittens backed him up.

But, even though maybe I'm becoming a dinosaur, the last I

1. The retina is indeed embryologically derived from the brain,
has two very well defined and studied neural layers that indeed
do early processing of vision, one layer of which (ganglion
cells) creates the axons that form the nerve fibers making up
the optic nerve itself. (You can't have a nerve going from one
place to another without neurons to create that nerve.) By all
means, Kathy, list some of the latest "advances" that back up
Ray's version instead.

2. Nobody has yet found reciprocal nerve connections in humans
between retina and cortex, certainly no way for the brain to
bully the retina into seeing only what the brain wants it to see
if it isn't connected to it to begin with. Please correct me
with the latest "advances" if I am wrong about this.

3. The kitten research shows that visual deprivation in young
kittens (also baby monkeys) causes permanent damage to the
animals' vision, including greatly decreased visual acuity and
loss of binocular vision. This is also reflected histologically
in the layout and numbers of the neurons in the visual cortex
connected to a deprived and non-deprived eyes and
neurophysiologically in the properties of the neurons (e.g. loss
of binocularly driven cells, loss of cells responding to fine
detail, loss of ability to detect orientation of edges). Please
tell me which of the latest "advances" in this kitten research
instead demonstrates that these deprived kittens have brains
bossing their retinas around.

Awaiting your references. Thank you for your initial complement
on the educational content of my emails before your usual
nonsense began.
