Mapping nonlinear receptive field structure in primate retina at single cone resolution.
The function of a neural circuit is shaped by the computations performed by its interneurons, which in many cases are not easily accessible to experimental investigation. Here, we elucidate the transformation of visual signals ...
Behavioural and physiological limits to vision in mammals.
(Philosophical transactions of the Royal Society of London. Series B, Biological sciences, 2017-04)
Human vision is exquisitely sensitive-a dark-adapted observer is capable of reliably detecting the absorption of a few quanta of light. Such sensitivity requires that the sensory receptors of the retina, rod photoreceptors, ...
Formation of retinal direction-selective circuitry initiated by starburst amacrine cell homotypic contact.
A common strategy by which developing neurons locate their synaptic partners is through projections to circuit-specific neuropil sublayers. Once established, sublayers serve as a substrate for selective synapse formation, ...
Distribution and diversity of intrinsically photosensitive retinal ganglion cells in tree shrew.
(The Journal of comparative neurology, 2017-12-14)
Intrinsically photosensitive retinal ganglion cells (ipRGCs) mediate the pupillary light reflex, circadian entrainment, and may contribute to luminance and color perception. The diversity of ipRGCs varies from rodents to ...
Cell type-specific changes in retinal ganglion cell function induced by rod death and cone reorganization in rats.
(Journal of neurophysiology, 2017-07)
We have determined the impact of rod death and cone reorganization on the spatiotemporal receptive fields (RFs) and spontaneous activity of distinct retinal ganglion cell (RGC) types. We compared RGC function between healthy ...
Probing Computation in the Primate Visual System at Single-Cone Resolution.
(Annual review of neuroscience, 2019-03-11)
Daylight vision begins when light activates cone photoreceptors in the retina, creating spatial patterns of neural activity. These cone signals are then combined and processed in downstream neural circuits, ultimately producing ...
Temporal resolution of single photon responses in primate rod photoreceptors and limits imposed by cellular noise.
(Journal of neurophysiology, 2018-11-28)
Sensory receptor noise corrupts sensory signals, contributing to imperfect perception and dictating central processing strategies. For example, noise in rod phototransduction limits our ability to detect light and minimizing ...
Advances in color science: from retina to behavior.
(The Journal of neuroscience : the official journal of the Society for Neuroscience, 2010-11)
Color has become a premier model system for understanding how information is processed by neural circuits, and for investigating the relationships among genes, neural circuits, and perception. Both the physical stimulus ...
