The results of previous studies suggest that class-specific interactions contribute to the development of the different classes of retinal ganglion cells. We tested this hypothesis by examining the morphologies and distributions of alpha (alpha) cells in regions of mature cat retina selectively depleted of beta (beta) cells as a result of visual cortex lesions at birth. We find that alpha cells in regions of central retina depleted of beta cells are abnormally large while alpha cells in regions… CONTINUE READING
