The retina is the third and inner coat of the eye which is a light-sensitive layer of
tissue. The optics of the eye create an image of the visual world on the retina ...
In most primates the retina is about 200-250 micrometers thick. The primary
layers of the retina from outermost surface to innermost surface: Pigment
The retina is the innermost layer of the eye (the tunica intima or internal tunic)
and is comparable to the film inside of a camera. It is composed of nerve tissue ...
Structure of the retina. (A) Section of the retina showing overall arrangement of
retinal layers. (B) Diagram of the basic circuitry of the retina. A three-neuron ...
The retina is composed of light-sensitive neurons arranged in three layers; the
first layer is made up of rods and cones and the other two transmit impulses from
This chapter is mainly about the neural part of the eye—the retina—but I will ....
Moving from back to front, we come to the middle layer of the retina, between the
structure of the retina The retina is a light-sensitive layer of nerve tissue lining the
inner surface of the eye. The retina creates an image projected on its surface ...
At the back of the eye lies the retina, seven layers of alternating cells and
processes which convert a light signal into a neural signal ("signal transduction").
The arrangement of the retina (in tissue sections oriented perpendicular to the
retinal surface) is vertical from outer to inner layers, except for the NFL, where the
It is sometimes described as a 'screen' on which the image is formed. In reality,
the retina is more complex than that. This page describes the layers of the retina.
