Ultra structural evidence of axonal regeneration following intracranial transection of optic nerve.

OBJECTIVE: The present work was aimed at studying the ultra structural changes of the proximal (retinal) stump of the intracranially transected optic nerve of the rat for any possible regenerative ability.

METHODS: Specimens were collected one (1 wpo) and four weeks(4 wpo) after the transection and the cross .....
