  title={multiple-bank retina of a deep-sea teleost, Chauliodus sloani},
  author={N. A. LOCKETt},
The pure rod retina of mature Chauliodus sloani contains up to five banks of rods, but that of small specimens contains only one bank. New banks are added progressively as the fish grows. The size of the retinal cells remains approximately constant throughout the range, but, as the retinal thickness increases with growth and new banks are added, the density of nuclei in the outer nuclear layer increases. The density of total rods increases as new banks are added, but that of the vitread bank… CONTINUE READING
