We have analyzed aspects of photoreceptor topography in wholemounts of human fetal retinae in the age range 13-24 weeks of gestation. Fetal retinae were stained with cresyl violet and the sizes and packing densities of rods and cones analyzed in the conventional manner. Cones and rods were present within a differentiating region, free of mitotic figures and approximately centered on the putative fovea, represented by the foveal cone mosaic. At 13 weeks of gestation the foveal cone mosaic was… CONTINUE READING
