Scientific research of the retina all started with vast experiences of its anatomical constitution. The selective staining of neurons completed through the Golgi procedure has resulted in a accomplished photo of the structure of the tissue when it comes to its individ ual components. Cajal, specifically, used this tech nique to bare the basics of retinal struc ture. within the stories that undefined, selective stain ing process endured to be decisive within the research of neuroanatomy, and in recent times those ideas were complemented through electron microscopy. The complexity of retinal constitution that has been published calls for a useful clarification, and elec trophysiology makes an attempt to supply it. yet useful research, like anatomy, needs to finally be according to the only mobilephone. it's only through the use of dyes to mark the recording web site that you can actually determine the cells concerned. whilst this succeeds, because it has lately, you possibly can truly healthy useful occasions into the ana tomical framework. With those advances, our strate gies and strategies towards an knowing of the constitution and serve as of the retina have moved in to a brand new phase.
