Abstract

Specialized areas in the vertebrate retina are critical for high-acuity vision, yet the molecular mechanisms driving the development of high-acuity areas (HAAs) remain largely unknown. In Developmental Cell, da Silva and Cepko (2017) show that restricted degradation of retinoic acid and elevated FGF8 signaling give rise to the chick HAA.
