Responses of the pigmented rabbit retina to NMPTP, a chemical inducer of parkinsonism.
The electrophysiological and neurochemical effects of N-methyl-4-phenyl-1,2,3,6-tetrahydropyridine (NMPTP), a chemical inducer of Parkinsonism in man and monkeys, on the pigmented rabbit retina wereExpand

The photoreceptors of the west indian manatee
Using light and electron microscopy we found that the manatee retina has both rodlike and conelike photoreceptors in accord with its diurnal behavior pattern. Outer segment disks in both cell typesExpand

Physiologic and anatomic development of the photoreceptors of normally-reared and dark-reared rabbits
SummaryThe postnatal development of the rod photoreceptor of normally-reared and dark-reared pigmented rabbits was studied using physiological and anatomical methods. The late receptor potentialExpand

Modifications by light of synaptic density in the inner plexiform layer of the toad, Xenopus laevis
Abstract Retinal differentiation was analyzed quantitatively in light- and dark-reared larvae of the toad Xenopus laevis . Simple and serial conventional synapses and bipolar cell synaptic ribbons inExpand

Morphological findings in retinitis pigmentosa with early diffuse rod dysfunction.
The retina from the postmortem donor eye of a 64-year-old man with advanced autosomal dominant retinitis pigmentosa (RP) was studied with light and electron microscopy. Two children of the donor wereExpand

Anatomic and physiologic development of the photoreceptor of the kitten
SummaryThe postnatal development of the photoreceptor of the cat was studied using physiological and anatomical methods. The late receptor potential (LRP) was recorded in vitro and the threshold andExpand

Intranuclear rodlets in the rabbit retina following treatment with MPTP.
Retinas from pigmented rabbits treated with N-methyl-4-phenyl-1,2,3,6- tetrahydropyridine (MPTP, a chemical inducer of Parkinsonism in man and monkeys) were studied using light- and electronExpand

  • 1 August 1978
A method was devised for morphological localization of the area centralis, and the timecourse of its formation as a structural entity was established. Postnatal differentiation of the retina proceedsExpand
