How to See the Illood Vvisela of the Kye.
Purklnje discovered n very simple and
highly entertaining experiment by means
of which tho retina, with all Its veins and
blood vessels standing out In relief against
it, can bo thrown into tho ulr before one's
eyes. It is called tho nrliorescent figure,
from Its likeness to a many branched tree,
and is produced In tho following manner:
lu a dark room nt night move a caudle
backward and forward lwfore tho eyes,
these being firmly fixed on the wall be
yond. After a few seconds the nlr will as
sume a reddish appearance, and running
over it in nil directions may be seen the
veins nnd blood vessels in bold relief, while
toward the center of the figure there rises
up a dark trunk, from which the veins
branch out on all sides.
The trunk is visible where the optlo
nerve enters the eye, nnd this experiment
is chiefly interesting to the student as
proving that tho parts of tho retina which
actually receive nnd produce the sensation
of light must lie behind the blood vessels,
since these cast their shallow onto it, ami
we nro enabled to see them, as wo see any
other object, externally. Chambers' Jour
