PMID:  539367     Owner:  NLM     Status:  MEDLINE    
A quantitative study was carried out on the adult cat optic nerve near the eyeball by systematically measuring the perimeters of all the axons seen through the optic microscope. The main purpose of this study was to define the topographical distribution of these axons in function of their size. Statistical studies show the existence of an area of maximal concentration of large axons in crescent form situated in the temporal zone of the nerve. The neurophysiological implications are discussed.
