To provide a quantitative description of postnatal retinal expansion in rabbits, a new procedure was developed to map the retinae, which cover the inner surface of hemispheres or parts of rotation ellipsoids, in situ, onto a single plane. This method, as well as the known distribution of Müller cells per unit retinal surface area, were used to estimate the(More)
Müller (glial) cells of the rabbit retina were stained with antibodies against the intermediate filament protein vimentin in retinal wholemounts from various developmental stages. Both the density of stained profiles and the mean diameter of these profiles were measured, with the microscope focus in the inner plexiform layer of the retinae. Within this(More)
