Myelination of axons in the nerve fiber layer (NFL) of the retina occurs as a sporadic abnormality in several mammalian species including man, monkey, cat and rat. All of these species have vascularized retinae and, in the latter three, ultrastructural studies have demonstrated the pattern of medullation to be similar to Schwann cell myelination in the peripheral nervous system. This contrasts with an oligodendrocytic pattern of myelination normally present in the avascular retina of the rabbit… CONTINUE READING
