A polyaxonal amacrine cell population in the primate retina.
(The Journal of neuroscience : the official journal of the Society for Neuroscience, 2014-03)
Amacrine cells are the most diverse and least understood cell class in the retina. Polyaxonal amacrine cells (PACs) are a unique subset identified by multiple long axonal processes. To explore their functional properties, ...
High-sensitivity rod photoreceptor input to the blue-yellow color opponent pathway in macaque retina.
(Nat Neurosci, 2009-09)
Small bistratified cells (SBCs) in the primate retina carry a major blue-yellow opponent signal to the brain. We found that SBCs also carry signals from rod photoreceptors, with the same sign as S cone input. SBCs exhibited ...
Identification of a Retinal Circuit for Recurrent Suppression Using Indirect Electrical Imaging.
(Current biology : CB, 2016-08)
Understanding the function of modulatory interneuron networks is a major challenge, because such networks typically operate over long spatial scales and involve many neurons of different types. Here, we use an indirect electrical ...
