Early retinal development in the zebrafish, Danio rerio: Light and electron microscopic analyses
The morphological differentiation of the zebrafish retina was analyzed by using light (LM) and transmission electron (TEM) microscopy between the time of initial ganglion cell differentiation (≈32Expand

Early‐eye morphogenesis in the zebrafish, Brachydanio rerio
Early eye morphogenesis in the zebrafish between 12 and 36 hours postfertilization was studied by light‐ and scanning electron microscopy. Overall, early eye morphogenesis in the zebrafish is similarExpand

A behavioral screen for isolating zebrafish mutants with visual system defects.
Optokinetic and phototactic behaviors of zebrafish larvae were examined for their usefulness in screening for recessive defects in the visual system. The optokinetic response can be reliably andExpand

Zebrafish ultraviolet visual pigment: absorption spectrum, sequence, and localization.
In many vertebrates, UV-sensitive photoreceptors have been identified by microspectrophotometry and UV-visual sensitivity has been identified by behavioral studies, but as yet no vertebrateExpand

Zebrafish: A model system for the study of eye genetics
Over the last decade, the use of the zebrafish as a genetic model has moved beyond the proof-of-concept for the analysis of vertebrate embryonic development to demonstrated utility as a mainstreamExpand

The Retina: An Approachable Part of the Brain
John Dowling's The Retina, published in 1987, quickly became the most widely recognized introduction to the structure and function of retinal cells. In this Revised Edition, Dowling draws onExpand
