dc.description.abstractThe Brahminy blind snake, Ramphotyphlops braminus, is an ancestral, subterranean species1. It is well studied as a triploid, all female, parthenogenic species2, but essentially nothing is known about its eyes and brain. A brain atlas for snakes in general is nonexistent. Therefore, identification of this minute organism’s brain and eye architecture was the first step toward investigating the neural pathways related to photoreceptive mechanisms retained in the subcutaneous eyes.en_US
