Electrophysiological and morphological techniques have been used to characterize optic nerve axons in the red-eared turtle. Three distinct groups of axons are identified on the basis of conduction velocity and axon diameter. The first group (T1) is a small population of axons with large diameters (2.8–4.5 μm) and mean conduction velocities of 13m/sec. The second group (T2) is a large population of axons with medium diameters (0.4–2.8 μm) and mean conduction velocities of 3 m/sec. The third… CONTINUE READING
