Neuronal circuitry of the pigeon retina (Columba livia) : the morphological classification and organization of various neuronal types
The three studies presented in this thesis were conducted to advance our understanding of the retinal circuitry that contributes to processing high visual acuity in the pigeon. In the first study, the topographic density changes and degree of photoreceptor (PR) to retinal ganglion cell (RGC) convergence in the pigeon retina was determined. DAPI or Propidium iodide labelled PRs and RGCs were counted in the retina. Rod density was quantified by counting anti-rod opsin stained outer segments. The...[Show more]
