the above image is a unique light micrograph of an embryonic zebrafish retina, viewed as if looking directly into the eye
the central yellow region is the lens while the surrounding pink to purple periphery represents the developing retina, with the pink area constituting undifferentiated stem cells and the purple constituting functional, differentiated retinal neurons
the image is of the whole eye, though it was created by reflecting an image of half the retina to recreate the natural symmetry of this structure
