A method was devised for morphological localization of the area centralis, and the timecourse of its formation as a structural entity was established. Postnatal differentiation of the retina proceeds as follows: the irregularly laminated ganglion cell layer of the newborn becomes unilaminar everywhere but in the presumptive area centralis, a difference which is first discernible at five to six days of age; the outer nuclear layer is always of the same thickness in the area centralis, while in… CONTINUE READING
