Intrinsic physiological properties of rat retinal ganglion cells with a comparative analysis

Wong, Raymond; Cloherty, Shaun; Ibbotson, Michael; O'Brien, Brendan

Description

Mammalian retina contains 15-20 different retinal ganglion cell (RGC) types, each of which is responsible for encoding different aspects of the visual scene. The encoding is defined by a combination of RGC synaptic inputs, the neurotransmitter systems used, and their intrinsic physiological properties. Each cell's intrinsic properties are defined by its morphology and membrane characteristics, including the complement and localization of the ion channels expressed. In this study, we examined...[Show more]
