We report a survey of the population of ganglion cells in the rabbit retina. A random sample of 301 neurons in the ganglion cell layer was targeted for photofilling, a method in which the arbors of the chosen neurons are revealed by diffusion of a photochemically induced fluorescent product from their somas. An additional 129 cells were labeled by(More)
The mechanism of retinal cell death was studied in mutant zebrafish (Danio rerio) which undergo inherited degeneration of the retina and the brain. The shrunken head (shr(m33)) mutation was isolated as part of a large scale mutagenesis screen. The yellow head (yhd) mutation arose spontaneously among inbred wild type zebrafish. Although the mutants share(More)
Integrated medical curricular changes are altering the historical regional anatomy approach to abdominal dissection. The renal system is linked physiologically and biochemically to the cardiovascular and respiratory systems; yet, anatomists often approach the urinary system as part of the abdomen and pelvic regions. As part of an integrated curriculum, the(More)
