| View Cart ⇗ | Info

Diagram showing relations of the neurons and sensory epithelium in the retina. labels: E, epithelial layer of nucleated rode and cone cells, rods being directed towards choroid coat of retina; N1, neurons of first series receiving by their dendritic impulses from the rod and cone cells and transmitting them by their axons to N2, the neurons of the second series. The axons of the neurons of the second series pass along the inner surface of the retina to the blind spot, where they unite to form the optic nerve.
