Transneuronal retrograde degeneration of retinal ganglion cells after removal of primary visual cortex (area V1) is well established by quantitative neurohistological analysis of the ganglion cell layer in monkeys, but remains controversial in human patients. Therefore, we first histologically examined retinal degeneration in sectioned archived retinae of 26 macaque monkeys with unilateral V1 ablation and post-surgical survival times ranging from 3 months to 14.3 years. In addition, the cross...Expand abstract
