About this book

Development and Organization of the Retina offers an invaluable survey of contemporary research issues and methods dealing with the retina and retinal projections.
The book's 19 chapters report on investigations into two areas: research into the organization of the mature retina and work on developmental issues. A sampling of chapter topics includes -- embryonic patterning of cone subtypes in the mammalian retina -- synaptic transmission between retinal neurons -- scaling the retina, macro and micro -- retinal ganglion cell axonal transport, and more.

Reviews

`The book gives an excellent and comprehensive overview of a major active ophthalmogical research field. The book can be highly recommended for those who might be interested in a five-hour update on the current status within retinal development and organization.'
Acta Ophthalmologica Scandinavica, 77:4 (August 1999)
