There are two types of horizontal cells, the luminosity and the chromaticity cells, in the retina of the kissing gourami, Helostoma rudolfi. Luminosity cells occupy the outermost layer proximal to the receptor terminals, whereas chromaticity cells form a layer proximal to the layer of luminosity cells. Neither type of cell has axons. Responses were evoked(More)
The same set of stimuli and analytic methods that was used to study the dynamics of horizontal cells () was applied to a study of the response dynamics and signal processing in amacrine cells in the retina of the kissing gourami, Helostoma rudolfi. The retina contains two major classes of amacrine cells that could be identified from their morphology: C and(More)
The dynamics of intracellular responses from ganglion cells, as well as that of spike discharges, were studied with the stimulus regimens and analytic procedures identical to those used to study the dynamics of the responses from horizontal and amacrine cells (,). The stimuli used were large fields of red and green light given as a pulsatile input or(More)
BACKGROUND Nationally, approximately 24% of preschool children are overweight or obese, with low-income communities disproportionately affected. Few interventions to prevent obesity in children at greatest risk have demonstrated positive results. Therefore, we evaluated the effectiveness of a novel group well-child care intervention for primary obesity(More)
