Dendritic Computation of Direction Selectivity by Retinal Ganglion Cells

Taylor, Wayne R; He, Shigang; Levick, William; Vaney, David I


Direction-selective ganglion cells (DSGCs) in the retina respond strongly when stimulated by image motion in a preferred direction but are only weakly excited by image motion in the opposite null direction. Such coding represents an early manifestation of complex information processing in the visual system, but the cellular locus and the synaptic mechanisms have yet to be elucidated. We recorded the synaptic activity of DSGCs using strategies to observe the asymmetric inhibitory inputs that...[Show more]
