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 ...
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, ...
Retinal representation of the elementary visual signal.
The propagation of visual signals from individual cone photoreceptors through parallel neural circuits was examined in the primate retina. Targeted stimulation of individual cones was combined with simultaneous recording ...
Correlated firing among major ganglion cell types in primate retina.
(The Journal of physiology, 2011-01)
Retinal ganglion cells exhibit substantial correlated firing: a tendency to fire nearly synchronously at rates different from those expected by chance. These correlations suggest that network interactions significantly shape ...
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 ...
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 ...
