Postmortem morphometric investigation of autopsy material is helpful for understanding the alterations cells undergo during life. The present work was undertaken to determine the morphologic features of human retinal ganglion cells during the first 2 days after death. Ganglion cells of 16 retinas were obtained from eyes, the corneas of which had been retrieved for keratoplasties. The ganglion cells were stained with the fluorescent carbocyanine dye Dil and investigated 12 to 36 hours postmortem… CONTINUE READING
