On the Understanding of Retinal Topography
A remarkable feature of mammalian retina is the constancy of its organization across its thickness. In the retinas of all mammals, three layers of nerve cells are recognized, separated by plexiform (synaptic) layers. The receptor cells lie on the outer surface of the retina, with the tips of their outer segments enclosed by cells of the pigment epithelium; bipolar, amacrine, interplexiform, and horizontal cells form the middle layer, and ganglion cells and their axons form the innermost layers of the retina.
