The cross-section of a mouse optic nerve (Case ID 011994H) imaged at low magnification using an electron microscope. The
small squares to the right of the image are 1x1 millimeters.
Click on the highlighted spots in red to view a higher magnification. (The next magnifications are about 200 kilobytes and 475x607 pixels.)
This is a set of 19 micrographs taken from a 58-day-old female C57BL/6. The sample area was 32.54 microns², with a
high magnification of 12,931x and low magnification of 195x. There are an estimated 47245 ± 4000 axons in this optic nerve in an area of 71,947 microns².
The histogram and basic statistics of acquired data from the measurements of the axons, as well as the
calibrations of the micrograph set are available.
