To characterize aging as a factor responsible for structural changes, the retinae of 47 Wistar-derived albino rats and 50 pigmented rats of the Norway and BDE (Han) strains between the ages of 1 and 36 months were examined by light and electron microscopy and analyzed for changes in cell densities. In all 3 rats strains there was an overall decline in nuclear densities of outer layer nuclei by 38-50% and inner layer nuclei by 27-33% between the ages of 1 and 27 months. Over the same age range… CONTINUE READING
