The retina and optic nerve head have been examined by light and electron microscopy in adult Xenopus laevis after injury to optic nerve fibres. Intraorbital resection, transection or crush of the optic nerve all resulted in the appearance at the retina of a mass of actively growing axons which formed a ring around the intraretinal and adjacent choroidal portions of the optic nerve head. Formation of this heterotopic axon population was first noted at two weeks after nerve injury and fibres… CONTINUE READING
