Reconstructed ganglion and amacrine cells.

In Panel a of the figure on the right, the gray scale image shows a cross section of the SBFSEM volume that is perpendicular to the retina. You can think of this as a cut through a sandwich. The filling is the inner plexiform layer (IPL), the top piece of bread the inner nuclear layer (INL) and the bottom piece of bread the ganglion cell layer (GCL). The IPL contains synaptic connections between the axons of bipolar cells, and the dendrites of amacrine and ganglion cells.
