Distribution of photoreceptor types in the retina of a marsupial, the tammar wallaby (Macropus eugenii)

Hemmi, Jan; Grunert, Ulrike

Description

Mammalian retinae generally contain low numbers of short-wavelength-sensitive cones (S-cones) and higher numbers of middle- to long-wavelength-sensitive cones (M-cones). Some recent studies found topographic differences between the different photoreceptor types and in some instances between photoreceptors and ganglion cells. To investigate this question further, we constructed topographical maps of the different photoreceptors found in an Australian marsupial, the tammar wallaby. We used two...[Show more]
