1. Aspartate-isolated photoresponses of the red rods to flashes and steps of light have been recorded, both in the presence of and without background lights of varying strength. 2. The results are interpreted in terms of a model of rod outer segment adaptation, where the three model parameters correspond to the adaptation processes associated with the transmitter release, the transmitter background concentration and the plasma membrane leakage, respectively. 3. The stimulus-response function… CONTINUE READING
