Abstract:By comparing the cell form and the cell in each zone of Gekko gecko with Eumeces chinensis, the differences of optic structure between two animals with different behaviour were studied. Using the Nissl-stained and HRP labeling methods, the areas, forms and dendrites’ orientation of the neurons in tectum were measured and noted for statistical analysis. The results show that the two animals’ tectums have some similarities in project fashion and the comparison of cells within zones. The differences between the two animals’ tectums include that the cells’ areas of C zone in Eumeces chinensis’s tectum is more larger than Gekko gecko’s. The cells’ dendrites divarication of S zone are abroader than Gekko gecko’s; the proportion of tectorial cells in different sizes and forms are different within 3 zones. These results indicate that there are some differences between the tectorial structure of nocturnal Gekko gecko and diurnal Eumeces chinensis.
