A quantitative estimation of the number of axons in the optic nerves of human foetuses ranging from approximately 8 to 26 weeks has been made. This study shows that from 8 weeks there is a steady increase in the number of axons with subsequent decrease by 26 weeks, during the period of lamination in the dorsal lateral geniculate nucleus (dLGN).
