Horse vision and an explanation for the visual behaviour originally explained by the 'ramp retina'.
Here we provide confirmation that the 'ramp retina' of the horse, once thought to result in head rotating visual behaviour, does not exist. We found a 9% variation in axial length of the eye betweenExpand

Neuronal density in the human retinal ganglion cell layer from 16–77 years
Literature assessing whether or not neurons (retinal ganglion cells and displaced amacrine cells) are lost from the retinal ganglion cell layer in mammals with age is still controversial, someExpand

Retinal Structure and Visual Acuity in a Polyprotodont Marsupial, the Fat-Tailed Dunnart (Sminthopsis crassicaudata)
The visual system of the fat-tailed dunnart (Sminthopsis crassicaudata), a small polyprotodont marsupial, has been examined both anatomically and behaviourally. The ganglion cell layer was examinedExpand

A Strong Correlation Exists between the Distribution of Retinal Ganglion Cells and Nose Length in the Dog
The domestic dog, Canis lupus familiaris, is a subspecies of the gray wolf, Canis lupus, with almost identical mitochondrial DNA. The dog is the most diverse species on earth, with skull lengthExpand

Spermiogenesis and spermiation in a marsupial, the tammar wallaby (Macropus eugenii)
Fourteen steps of spermatid development in the tammar wallaby (Macropus eugenii), from the newly formed spermatid to the release of the spermatozoon into the lumen of the seminiferous tubules, wereExpand

Generation of retinal cells in the wallaby, Setonix brachyurus (quokka)
We have examined the generation of retinal cells in the wallaby, Setonix brachyurus (quokka). Animals received a single injection of tritiated thymidine between postnatal days 1-85 and retinae wereExpand

Anatomical comparison of the macaque and marsupial visual cortex: Common features that may reflect retention of essential cortical elements
This study identifies fundamental anatomical features of primary visual cortex, area V1 of macaque monkey cerebral cortex, i.e., features that are present in area V1 of phylogenetically distantExpand

Variability in the Location of the Retinal Ganglion Cell Area Centralis Is Correlated with Ontogenetic Changes in Feeding Behavior in the Black Bream, Acanthopagrus butcheri (Sparidae, Teleostei)
The development of neural cell topography in the retinal ganglion cell layer was examined in a teleost, the black bream (Acanthopagrus butcheri). From Nissl-stained wholemounts, it was establishedExpand

The Retinal Ganglion Cell Layer and Visual Acuity of the Camel
We examined the retinal ganglion cell layer of the dromedary camel, Camelus dromedarius. We have estimated that there are 8 million neurons in the ganglion cell layer of this large retina (mean areaExpand
