In this report, we describe the development of a modified adeno-associated virus (AAV) capsid and promoter for transduction of retinal ON-bipolar cells. The bipolar cells, which are post-synaptic to the photoreceptors, are important retinal targets for both basic and preclinical research. In particular, a therapeutic strategy under investigation for(More)
In order to understand how retinal circuits encode visual scenes, the neural activity of defined populations of retinal ganglion cells (RGCs) has to be investigated. Here we report on a method for stimulating, detecting, and subsequently targeting defined populations of RGCs. The possibility to select a distinct population of RGCs for extracellular(More)
Reaction-diffusion systems where one of the reagents (outer electrolyte) penetrates into a gel by diffusion and forms a precipitate with the other reagent (inner electrolyte) homogenized in the gel, are able to produce various complex precipitation patterns. The previously studied NaOH + AgNO3 and recently discovered CuCl2 + K3[Fe(CN)6] processes, (where(More)
Simple inorganic reactions in gels, such as NaOH + CuCl(2), NaOH + AgNO(3), and CuCl(2) + K(3)[Fe(CN)(6)], can yield to various precipitation patterns. The first compound penetrates in a hydrogel by diffusion, and reacts with the second compound homogenized in the gel. The precipitate patterns formed in these reactions have got two kinds of bordering(More)
The comparative study of cell types is a powerful approach toward deciphering animal evolution. To avoid selection biases, however, comparisons ideally involve all cell types present in a multicellular organism. Here, we use image registration and a newly developed "Profiling by Signal Probability Mapping" algorithm to generate a cellular resolution 3D(More)
