We present a variety of unpublished histological data about the pigeon optic nerve. The images from the electron microscopes are related to the Fig. 3B.
Materials & Methods excerpt: ultra-thin sections (100 nm) at a distance of 0.5-1.0 mm from the optic disc were processed for electron microscopy on FEI Tecnai™ G2 Sphera. We used a grid scanning strategy, moving the picture field from the centre of a mesh to the centre of the next to take representative pictures of the whole axon section.
