There are 3 distinct types of glial cells in the optic lamina of the lobster: dark, light, and sheet cells, all distinguished from the neurons by being multipolar and not having dictyosomes. Dark cells are surrounded by intercellular material and together with light cells constitute a structural support for the groups of nerve cells. Light cells are also sheath cells for the neuron somata. The sheet cells have numerous flat processes which together form the 2 glial layers in which the synaptic… CONTINUE READING
