The lengths of the fibres of Henle in the retina of macaque monkeys: implications for vision.

Abstract:

In Golgi preparations of retinae from macaque monkeys the lengths of the fibres of Henle from photoreceptors, and Müller's fibres were measured. It was shown that the lengths of Müller's fibres provide a good estimate of the lengths of adjacent fibres of Henle of photoreceptors. The fibres form a radiate pattern with respect to the fovea. They are longest at the fovea and their length decreases in a systematic way with distance from the fovea. The implications of the fibre length are consider...
