In mammals, photoreceptors located in the inner retina convey photic information to the brain, regulating diverse non-image-forming tasks such as pupillary light reflexes and photic synchronization (entrainment) of daily activity rhythms. In nonmammalian vertebrates, the retina, deep brain photoreceptors, and pineal organ may be photoreceptive. Here we(More)
PURPOSE The vertebrate inner retina has a subset of intrinsically photosensitive retinal ganglion cells (ipRGCs) that express the nonvisual photopigment melanopsin. The intrinsically photosensitive retinal ganglion cells send light information from the environment to the brain to control, among other parameters, the amount of energy entering the eyes(More)
