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, ...
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 ...
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 ...
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 ...
