The topographic map of visual space in the sSC is retinotopic.

The motor map of in the dSC is retinotopic.

The superior colliculus is retinotopically organized.

AEV is partially, but not consistently, retinotopic.

The superficial SC projects retinotopically to LGN.

Retinotopic organization of a visual structure as the SC in the brain can be determined using fMRI.

Stuphorn et al. found neurons in the monkey SC whose activity was dependent on the retinotopic position of the target in a reaching task, but not to the actual path taken in reaching.

There is a distinction between two different kinds of bats: megabats and microbats. Megabats differ in size (generally), but also in the organization of their visual system. In particular, their retinotectal projections are different: while all of the retinotectal projections in microbats are contralateral, retinotectal projections in megabats are divided such that projections from the nasal part of the retina go to the ipsilateral SC and those from the peripheral part go to the contralateral SC. This is similar to primate vision.

In primates, retinotectal projections to each SC are such that each visual hemifield is mapped to one (contralateral) SC. This is in contrast with retinotectal projections in most other vertebrates, where all projections from one retina project to the contralateral SC.

The superficial SC is visuotopic.

The basic topography of retinotectal projections is set up by chemical markers. This topography is coarse and is refined through activity-dependent development.

We do not know whether other sensory maps than the visual map in the SC are initially set up through chemical markers, but it is likely.

If deep SC neurons are sensitive to tactile stimuli before there are any visually sensitive neurons, then it makes sense that their retinotopic organization be guided by chemical markers.

There's a retinotopic, polysynaptic pathway from the SC through LGN.

All visual areas from V1 to V2 and MT are retinotopic.

The ventral pathway of visual processing is weakly retinotopically organized.

Receptive fields in the dorsal pathway of visual processing are less retinotopic and more head-centered.

LGN is retinotopically organized.
