Retinal lesions were made in kittens between 3 and 60 days postnatal age and in adult cats. After postlesion survival times ranging from 4 to 11 months the dendritic morphology of retinal ganglion cells was revealed by retrograde labeling with horseradish peroxidase or with neurofibrillar staining techniques. After retinal lesions on the third postnatal day changes of dendritic morphology were observed in retinal ganglion cells adjacent to regions of retrograde degeneration. Originating from… CONTINUE READING
