The topographical distribution of cones and rods in the tree shrew retina was analysed quantitatively in whole-mounted retinae and horizontal semithin sections stained with cresyl violet or toluidine blue. The outer nuclear layer consists of a single layer of photoreceptor nuclei with the rod nuclei slightly displaced towards the outer plexiform layer. This facilitated quantification of the photoreceptor populations. The density of cones ranges from 12,000/mm2 in the peripheral retina to a… CONTINUE READING
