Many studies have been made of the color fields of the eye and some consideration has been given the form fields. With the invention of the microscope by Leeuwenhoeck in 1722, who first made a study of the retina of the frog, much interest has been shown in the structure and functions of the retina. Some of the world's greatest histologists such as Cajal, Mueller and others have studied the structural characteristics of the retina. Very little attention has been given the functions of the retina from the point of view of psychology.
