The pattern of dendritic stratification of retinal ganglion cells in the fetal monkey (Macaca mulatta) was examined using horseradish peroxidase and retinal explants. Ganglion cells in the rhesus monkey are born between embryonic day (E) 30-70 (LaVail et al., 1983). At E60, E67, and E68, approximately 50% of all ganglion cells within the central 3.0 mm of the retina had dendritic arbors that were unistratified within the inner plexiform layer (IPL), while the remaining 50% had bistratified… CONTINUE READING
