Distribution of short-wavelength-sensitive cones in human foetal and postnatal retina: early development of spatial order and density profiles

Cornish, Elisa E; Hendrickson, Anita E; Provis, Jan


We analysed spatial density and distribution of short-wavelength-sensitive photoreceptors (S-cones) in developing and adult human retinae using antibody against short-wavelength-sensitive opsin. Statistical tests indicate that before 20 weeks of gestation (WG) the S-cone mosaic is not distinguishable from a random distribution, but by 20 WG is significantly different from a random distribution in the perifoveal region, as reported previously for adult retina. Changes in spatial density during...[Show more]
