Abstract

In this paper we describe the results of the analysis of cell reproduction in the developing avian neural retina after dividing it into nine sectors. The distribution and frequency of different mitotic phases in the retina of the optic cup was studied in chick embryos in Hamburger-Hamilton's stages 13-14 and 17-18. A stereometric method was used to locate the figures for the mitotic index and their corresponding prophase, metaphase and anaphase-telophase indices throughout the optic cup.

Keywords : cell division, chick embryo, optic cup
