Abstract

The submicroscopic structure of the visual cells in the retina of such vertebrates as guinea pig and perch (2, 8–12), albino rat and mouse (5–7), and frog (14) has been studied by electron microscopy and their characteristic internal structure well defined. However, the peculiarities of the inner segments of the rod and cone of the avian retina have so far attracted little attention.
