This page covers biological details of component Retinal Ganglion. Region is part of aHuman target integrated biological model.

  • Top-down path to region: Peripheral Nervous System -> Sensory Ganglia (PNS.SG) -> Sensory Exteroception Ganglia (PN.SG.SE) -> Retinal Ganglion (LPC.PN.SG.RT) (see Mind Maps)
  • Type: sensory ganglion
  • Brain area: Lower Brain - Peripheral Control Area
  • Role: sensory.ganglion
  • Function: Capture sensory signal from rods and cones and transfer to retinal nucleus
  • Notes to function: layer 7 of cell bodies of rods and cones, which are layer 9 of retina
