Description

 

The layer of the nerual retina that contains Retinal Ganglion Cells (RGCs)

Ganglion cells are the final output neurons of the vertebrate retina.  The ganglion cell axons form the nerve fiber layer of the inner retina as they coalesce to form the optic nerve head, which is composed of ganglion cell axons and glia that migrate into the optic nerve as well as astrocytes that are derived from the optic stalk.
