Abstract

Pure neuroectodermal growth was obtained from the retina of the chicken embryo by removing the pecten before preparation of the cultures. Retinal tissue was cultured either as explants in plasma clots or as isolated cells after trypsinization. Epithelial cells formed sheets on which the other retinal cells grew. Horizontal cells maintained the associational characteristics. Development of photoreceptors with incomplete outer segments was observed.
