The ratio of pedicles over neurons has been determined in thin sagittal and flat sections of the rod-free central area of the human retina. The real amount of neurons has been calculated from the number of transections of nuclei. Results show that for each pedicle two to three bipolar cells are found, ± 0.6 horizontal cells, ± 0.7 amacrine cells, and 0.9 ganglion cells.
