Inner Molecular Layer
The Inner Molecular Layer is the fourth (4th) of the layers forming the retina of the human eye.
The retina is composed of several layers which, together, form the "screen" in the eye onto which an image of the area viewed by the eye is formed, and information about that image is segmented into packets of information that are passed to the visual cortex of the brain via the optic nerve.
The Inner Molecular Layer consists of a dense network of tiny fibres that connect and mesh together the dendrites of the ganglion cells (that form the Ganglionic Layer - layer 3) with the cells of the Inner Nuclear Layer (layer 5), which is located immediately behind the Inner Molecular Layer.
